French regions

France had 22 metropolitan regions (before 2016) and 5 overseas departments and regions, i.e. 27 regions in all.

.

The regions correspond to the largest administrative division in France, they are themselves divided into departments, except for the DOM TOM for which the region and department are combined. There are 27 regions in France, of which 22 are in mainland France and 5 in the overseas departments and territories. The regions are headed by a regional prefect who is appointed by the President of the French Republic. Although it has extensive administrative powers, the region has no legislative powers. Its powers cover the management of high schools, transport and economic activity. These powers are exercised within a regional council.

While the region does not have legislative power as stated above, it does ensure that regulations are enforced. It has an elected regional council, headed by a regional president who exercises executive power under the supervision of the regional prefect.
