The National Assembly (formerly the Chamber of Deputies) is the unicameral legislative branch of the government of Djibouti.

It consists of 65 members – 30 Somali (21 Issa) and 30 Afar – elected to serve five-year terms in multi-seat (4 to 37 each) constituencies. The first free multi-party parliamentary election since independence (1977) was held in 2003, with the ruling coalition, led by the People's Rally for Progress (RPP), receiving 62.7% of the vote.

Idriss Arnaoud Ali is the current National Assembly President.
