The unicameral National Assembly of Guinea is the country's legislative body.

The National Assembly that was formed following the 30 June 2002 parliamentary election had a total of 114 members. 76 members were directly elected through a system of proportional representation using national party-lists, while 38 members were elected in single member constituencies using the simple majority (or First-past-the-post) system. Members serve five-year terms. Elections due in 2007 were postponed initially to November 2008 and then to May 2009; a military coup in December 2008 resulted in the dissolution of the National Assembly, and it is unclear when the next election will be held.
