According to ALLCITYCODES.COM, Djibouti is divided into two area codes. The first, 25, covers most of the country including the capital city of Djibouti City and the surrounding areas. This area code is home to over 800 thousand people and it is the most populous area code in Djibouti. The second area code is 77, which covers the remaining parts of Djibouti as well as some small islands off its coast such as Obock and Tadjoura. Area code 25 encompasses much of Djibouti’s urban areas such as Balbala and Ali Sabieh, located near the border with Somalia. This area code also includes parts of Ali Addeh and Dikhil, two towns located in the south-central region of Djibouti near Ethiopia’s border. Area code 77 contains more rural areas such as Arta and Basso, located in the northwestern region of Djibouti near Eritrea’s border. It also includes some small islands off Djibouti’s coast such as Obock and Tadjoura which are home to a few thousand people combined. Both area codes have their own unique characteristics that differentiate them from each other. For example, 25 has a higher population density due to its proximity to major cities in Djibouti while 77 has a more rural feel due to its location in more remote parts of Djibouti such as Arta or Basso. Additionally, 77 also includes some small islands off Djibouti’s coast which provide a unique contrast to the mainland with their rugged terrain and sparsely populated landscapes that overlook the ocean waters below them. Djibouti is a semi-presidential republic, with a president who is the head of state, and a prime minister who is the head of government. The current president is Ismail Omar Guelleh, who has held office since 1999. The constitution of Djibouti was adopted in 1992 and provides for a multi-party system. The National Assembly is composed of 65 members who are elected to five-year terms by popular vote. The assembly also has two appointed members. Djibouti has four main political parties; the People’s Rally for Progress (RPP), Union for Democracy and Justice (UDJ), Union for National Salvation (USN) and Front for Restoration of Unity and Democracy (FRUD).
