Negeri Sembilan Administrative structure

Negeri Sembilan state is divided into seven districts namely Jelebu, Kuala Pilah, Port Dickson, Rembau, Seremban, Tampin and Jempol.

Each of the seven districts has a local municipal council that provides grassroots oversight of the community.

Furthermore, at the state level, the state executive council and the state assembly headed by the traditional ruler provide umbrella oversight of state activities.

The Executive Council is headed by a Chief Minister. The Chief Minister in association with other state senior officials runs the administration of Negeri Sembilan through its various specialized departments and agencies.

The state legislative assembly concerns with the legislations and polices relevant to the functioning of the state. The traditional ruler provides general oversight into all the functions of the state.

The Executive Council functions by carrying out activities such as promoting tourism, improving state works and infrastructure, agricultural and mines development, beautification of the territory and all functions of a local planning authority (Negeri Sembilan State Government 2011).

Tertiary institutions in Negeri Sembilan are regulated by the Malaysian Department of Higher Education that ensure Malaysian tertiary institutions compare favourably to international industry benchmarks.
