Burghs o Mexico Ceety[eedit | eedit soorce]

Main article: Burghs o Mexico Ceety

Mexico Ceety is a special case in that it is no organisit as a municipality, but as a federal destrict as the caipital o the federation. It is admeenistered through the Govrenment o the Federal Destrict an it haes its awn unicameral Legislative Assembly. For admeenistrative purposes, the Federal Destrict is subdivided into delegaciones or burghs. While no fully equivalent to a municipality, since 2000 they enjoy a certain degree o poleetical autonomy, in that residents athin a burgh directly elect a local borough heid o govrenment (cried jefe delegacional). Housomeivver, burghs dae no form local [municipal] councils nor are they constitutit bi a group o trustees. They do not hae regulatory pouers, which are maistly centralisit in the Federal Destrict govrenment. The majority o the ceety's public services are organisit bi the Federal Destrict even if part o the administration responsibilities are carriet oot bi the burghs. Despite this, at the federal level, the delegaciones o the Federal Destrict are considered a seicont-level territorial diveesion in statistical data collection an cross-municipal comparisons.

Ither municipalities in Mexico hae chosen tae uise a similar admeenistrative internal organisation. Aw municipalities o Baja California are subdividit intae burghs or delegaciones. The Mexicali Municipal;ity for example, is dividit intae 14 burghs besides the ceety o Mexicali which comprises the municipal seat an three addeetional metropolitan burghs. The municipality o Santiago de Querétaro, is subdividit intae seiven burghs. Nanetheless, the heids o govrenment o the burghs o Mexican municipalities are no electit bi the residents but appointit bi the municipal preses. Unlike the burghs o Mexico Ceety, which are seicont-level admeenistrative diveesions, the burghs o the municipalities constitute third-level admeenistrative diveesions.
