Government and politics

The administration of the city is tied to that of the Distrito Nacional, which acts as a provincial-level government for the city, albeit with reduced powers in certain areas. The city government consists of a directly elected executive Prefeito Superior (Lord Mayor), and an elected 25-member Câmara Legislativa do Distrito Nacional (Legislative Chamber of the National District) with significant powers of scrutiny and supply over the executive.
