The National Assembly is the lower house and main legislative political body of the Parliament of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was established by the 2006 constitution.[1]

It is located at the People's Palace in Kinshasa.

The most recent National Assembly was sworn in on January 28, 2019.[2][3][4]

Electoral system[edit]

The National Assembly is elected every five years by universal suffrage. For the 2018 elections the 500 seats of the assembly were apportioned among 181 electoral districts based on voter registration numbers.[5] This resulted in 62 members elected in single member constituencies by first-past-the-post and the remaining 438 members elected in multi-member constituencies by open list.[6]
