Districts of Turkmenistan sub-provincial administrative division of Turkmenistan

The districts of Turkmenistan are territorial entities below the regions of Turkmenistan. They may be either counties or cities. By Turkmen law, "...such cities must have population over 30,000 and be the administrative center of a province (welaýat); headed by a presidentially appointed häkim." Though this officially limits the number of such cities to five, in reality other cities are periodically accorded the status of a district. As of 5 January 2018, 34 cities in Turkmenistan enjoyed the status of districts, including the five provincial (welaýat) centers. One city, the capital city of Ashgabat, enjoys the status of a province.

Districts of England Level of subnational division of England used for the purposes of local government

The districts of England are a level of subnational division of England used for the purposes of local government. As the structure of local government in England is not uniform, there are currently four principal types of district-level subdivision. There are a total of 326 districts made up of 36 metropolitan boroughs, 32 London boroughs, 201 non-metropolitan districts, and 55 unitary authorities, as well as the City of London and the Isles of Scilly which are also districts, but do not correspond to any of these categories. Some districts are styled as boroughs, cities, or royal boroughs; these are purely honorific titles, and do not alter the status of the district. All boroughs and cities, and a few districts, are led by a mayor who in most cases is a ceremonial figure elected by the district council, but – after local government reform – is occasionally a directly elected mayor who makes most of the policy decisions instead of the council.
