About National Capital District
The NCD is the administrative unit that encompasses the
national capital of Papua New Guinea, Port Moresby. While the
administration of NCD is quite different to the Provincial
Governments, for electoral purposes, is classified as the
equivalent of a province, in that it has a Provincial Member,
who becomes the Governor of the district.
The NCD is separated into three open electorates, however
these are not considered districts in the same administrative
sense as the other open electorates of Papua New Guinea, due
to the wide-ranging authority of the National District Capital
The National Capital District Commission (NCDC) is the
administrative authority and operates under the National Capital
District Commission Act. This law establishes the NCDC a
governing body for the purpose of providing municipal services
to the entire city.
