Lami is governed by a Town Council of 12-members, elected for three-year terms, who elect a Mayor from among themselves. The Mayor's term is for one year, but may be extended indefinitely. The last municipal election, held on 22 October 2005, the Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua (SDL) won 11 of the 12 seats, ending 20 years of rule by the Ratepayers Association. The new council chose Tevita Vuatalevu as its Mayor.

Following the military coup of 2006, the regime dismissed all local government authorities. Marica Rokovada-Hallacy was appointed Administrator of Lami, as well as the nearby capital city of Suva. In 2010, she was replaced in both capacities by Chandu Umaria, a former Mayor of Suva.
