Belgische Gerechtelijke Arrondissementen

Judicial arrondissements of Belgium

The federalized country Belgium geographically consists of 3 regions, of which only Flemish Region and Walloon Region are subdivided into 5 provinces each; the Brussels-Capital Region is neither a province nor part of one.

In Belgium there are administrative, judicial and electoral arrondissements. These may or may not relate to identical geographical areas.

The 43 administrative arrondissements are an administrative level between the municipalities and the provinces. Brussels-Capital forms a single arrondissement for all 19 municipalities in the region by that name. Per region an overview of its municipalities (gemeenten/communes) and the district or administrative arrondissement these belong to can be found in the Municipalities in Belgium page; for these administrative arrondissements also more technical references are available.

ElectoralEdit

Until a short while ago the electoral districts for the election of the parliaments were electoral arrondissements; at present these are the ten provinces. The arrondissement of Brussels-Capital (geographically coinciding with the Brussels-Capital Region) is not part of any province and consequently forms its own electoral district.

For the elections of the Walloon Parliament, 13 arrondissements (or grouped arrondissements) are still being used as electoral circles:
