    The original Western Region of Ghana contained 23 districts made up of 1 metropolitis, 22 Municipalities and ordinary districts. However, following a reorganisation of Regions in 2018, the existing ten Regions were replaced by a new structure of sixteen Regions; as part of this reorganisation, nine districts (those asterisked below) were removed from the Western Region and formed into a new Western North Region with its new capital at Wiawso. The present Western Region is left with 14 districts.
