Mayotte elects on an insular level a deliberative assembly. The Departmental Council (Conseil Départemental) has 19 members, elected for a three-year term in single seat constituencies. Mayotte became an Overseas Department and Region in 2011, ending its previous unique transitional status of Departmental collectivity. Until March 2015 the assembly of a Department of France was known as the General Council (Conseil Général).
