City of LondonMain article: Wards of the City of London See also: City of London#Local government
The City of London forms a separate ceremonial county, which is governed by the City of London Corporation. This body is elected both by the businesses based in the City and the residents of the City, and is a system of local government unique within the United Kingdom. The reason for its exclusion on this list is that the Wards of the City of London are ancient and do not hold to the principles of fair distribution upheld by the Boundary Committee of the Electoral Commission under the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986. Boundaries were reviewed in 2003 and are again being reviewed, for 2013, however the number and the names of the wards do not change. They can be described as being both electoral divisions (electing common councillors and Aldermen to the Corporation) and permanent ceremonial, geographic and administrative entities within the City.
