Luxembourg is a unitary state composed of municipalities.
Local level: 102 municipalities
The municipal council (conseil communal) is the municipality's legislative body and is made up of councillors elected for a period of six years using a proportional or relative majority voting system, depending on the demographic size of the municipality. The council represents the municipality and is presided over by the mayor. It is in charge of all matters of municipal interest.

The college of the mayor and aldermen (collège des bourgmestre et échevins) is the municipality's executive and daily administrative body. It is composed of the mayor and the aldermen, whose number varies according to the demographic size of the municipality; the mayor and alderman are chosen from within the municipal council and sit on the council.

The mayor (bourgmestre) is proposed by a majority of members from within the municipal council for a six-year mandate. He/she chairs the college of the mayor and aldermen and the municipal council.
