When the first Swedish local government acts were implemented in 1863 the old City of Malmö was made one of the country's 88 city municipalities and the first city council was elected. The municipal territory has been augmented through amalgamations in 1911, 1915, 1931, 1935, 1952, 1967 and finally in 1971. In 1971 the city was also converted into a municipality of unitary type, like all others in Sweden. Malmö Municipality, however, calls itself Malmö Stad (City of Malmö) in all cases when it is legally possible. This is a decision taken by the municipal assembly. It is purely nominal and has no effect on the legal status of the municipality.
There are 8 urban areas (also called a Tätort or locality) in Malmö Municipality.
In the table the urban areas are listed according to the size of the population as of December 31, 2005. The municipal seat is in bold characters.

Following the 1996 City District Reform (Swedish stadsdelsreformen), Malmö Municipality is divided into the following 10 city districts (Swedish stadsdel), which manage public kindergartens, schools, and geriatric care within their geographical areas, and provide funds for local cultural and recreational activities.

The municipal legislative body of the municipality is the 61-member municipal assembly (kommunfullmäktige), elected by proportional representation for a four-year term. The assembly appoints the municipality's main governing bodies, the 11-member executive committee (kommunstyrelsen) and the 8 governing commissioners. The executive committee and the commissioners are headed by the Mayor (kommunstyrelsens ordförande).
