A desa is headed by a kepala desa, who is elected by popular vote. A kelurahan is headed by lurah, a civil servant appointed by local government (city or regency). A village is divided non-administratively into local communities which manage a certain number of households. In Aceh, a village is called as gampong. Since the implementation of regional autonomy in 2001, the larger nagari has been introduced in place of the desa as the lowest government unit in West Sumatra.[1]
