Arrondissements of "Belgium are "subdivisions below the "provinces of Belgium. There are administrative, judicial and electoral arrondissements. These may or may not relate to identical geographical areas.

Belgium, a federalized state, geographically consists of 3 "regions, of which only the "Flemish Region and the "Walloon Region are subdivided into five "provinces each; the "Brussels-Capital Region is neither a province nor is it part of one.

Judicial arrondissements of Belgium

Belgium has 12 judicial arrondissements:

Until March 31, 2014 Belgium had 27 judicial arrondissements.[1]

Electoral[edit]

Until 1999 (inclusive) the "electoral districts for the election of the parliaments were electoral arrondissements; at present these are the ten "provinces. The arrondissement of "Brussels-Capital (geographically coinciding with the "Brussels-Capital Region) is not part of any province and consequently forms its own electoral district.

For the elections of the "Walloon Parliament, 13 arrondissements (or grouped arrondissements) are still being used as electoral circles:
