Centro is the capital of the state of Tabasco and the largest municipality by population.

Tabasco is a state in Southeast Mexico that is divided into 17 municipalities.[1] According to the 2015 Mexican Intercensal Survey, it is the state that has the 20th largest with 2,238,603 inhabitants and is the 24th largest by land area spanning 24,738 square kilometres (9,551 sq mi).[1][2]

Municipalities in Tabasco are administratively autonomous of the state according to the 115th article of the 1917 Constitution of Mexico.[3] Every three years, citizens elect a municipal president (Spanish: presidente municipal) by a plurality voting system who heads a concurrently elected municipal council (ayuntamiento) responsible for providing all the public services for their constituents. The municipal council consists of a variable number of trustees and councillors (regidores y síndicos).[4] Municipalities are responsible for public services (such as water and sewerage), street lighting, public safety, traffic, supervision of slaughterhouses and the maintenance of public parks, gardens and cemeteries.[5] They may also assist the state and federal governments in education, emergency fire and medical services, environmental protection and maintenance of monuments and historical landmarks. Since 1984, they have had the power to collect property taxes and user fees, although more funds are obtained from the state and federal governments than from their own income.[5]
