Postos administrativos (administrative posts) are the main subdivisions of districts. This name, in use during colonial times, was abolished after independence, [1] and was replaced by localidades (localities). However, it was re-established in 1986. [2]

Administrative posts are headed by a Secretário (secretary), which before independence were called Chefes de Posto (post chief).

Administrative posts can be further subdivided into localities, also headed by secretaries.
