Regions of the Central African
by Juan Fandos-Rius
(UPDATED: 21 August 2016)
The administrative division of the Central African Republic into Régions was envisaged for the first time in 1993, then again by the Constitution of 14 January 1995. In April 1995 the country was divided into 16 prefectures grouped into seven regions. By means of Law No. 96.013 (Loi nº 96.013, du 13 janvier 1996) portant création des régions et fixant leurs limites territoriales (which slightly modified the April 1995 project) a regional system was finally foreseen and regions are to be considered a first administrative division level of the country, but as long as the regional system is not put into force Prefectures remain the first administrative division level of the Central African Republic.
