List of Local Governments in Malaysia

Local government in Malaysia,[1] according to Local Government Act 1971 of Malaysia, means city councils, municipal councils and district councils.

City council

Local governments administrating a city are normally called City Council (Majlis Bandaraya). However, there are local authorities which are called City Hall (Dewan Bandaraya). The usage of the term "city hall" is a possible misnomer since a city hall normally refers to the building which houses a city council instead of the local council itself.

Subang Jaya City Council, having received its city status on 3rd June 2020, is the newest City Council formed in Malaysia.
