List of communes of Haiti

The commune (French pronunciation: [kɔmyn]) is the third-level divisions of Haiti. The 10 departments have 42 arrondissements, which are divided into 145 communes and then into 571 communal sections.[1][2][3]

Communes are roughly equivalent to civil townships and incorporated municipalities.

Administration

Each commune has a municipal council (conseil municipal) compound of three members elected by the inhabitants of the commune for a 4-year term. The municipal council is led by a president often called mayor.

Each commune has an municipal assembly (assemblée municipale) who assists the council in its work. The members of the assembly are also elected for 4 years.

Each commune is ruled by a municipality.
