Regions of Peru


The 1979 constitution organised Peru into twelve administrative regions.

The regionalization law of 1989 granted elected governments to the regions;

however these were abolished on 29 December 1992 by President Fujimori.

The law of regional governments promulgated on 19 November 2002 created

twenty-five departamentos (departments) with an elected president which

came into force on 01 January 2003.
