Machine readable (JSON) descriptions of municipal (city) council descriptions for use with opencivicdata/pupa.

Countries where regions (aka states or provinces) are not relevant can skip them and simply use this pattern:
country code/city name with dash separators plus .json extension

To contribute municipal description data, fork the repository, and submit a pull request.
