== Jurisdictions  ==
 
 
 
'''Administrative divisions'''
 
 
 
Afghanistan is administratively divided into thirty-four (34) provinces (''welayats''), and for each province there is a capital. Each province is then divided into many provincial districts, and each district normally covers a city or several townships.
 
 
 
The Governor of the province is appointed by the Ministry of Interior, and the Prefects for the districts of the province will be appointed by the provincial Governor. The Governor is the representative of the central government of Afghanistan, and is responsible for all administrative and formal issues. The provincial Chief of Police is appointed by the Ministry of Interior, who works together with the Governor on law enforcement for all the cities or districts of that province.
 
 
 
There is an exception in the capital city (Kabul) where the Mayor is selected by the President of Afghanistan, and is completely independent from the prefecture of the Kabul Province.
