The Federal Territory (Malay: Wilayah Persekutuan) is a collective of three territories, namely Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan, governed directly by the federal government of Malaysia. All of them have equivalent status as the 13 states, though the territories have neither a head of state nor a state legislature. Of the three, Kuala Lumpur is the Malaysian capital, while Putrajaya is Malaysia’s administrative capital.
The federal territories were originally part of two states – Sabah and Selangor. Both Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya were part of Selangor, while Labuan was part of Sabah. Kuala Lumpur was ceded by the state of Selangor to the federal government in 1974, while Labuan, became the second federal territory in 1984. Putrajaya became the third federal territory in 2001.
First stamps were issued in 1979.
