The People's Assembly of the Republic of Abkhazia (Abkhaz: Аҧсны жәлар реизара, Russian: Народное Собрание Республики Абхазия) is the legislature of the internationally unrecognised Republic of Abkhazia.


The People's Assembly has 35 members, elected for five-year terms in single-seat constituencies. Nugzar Ashuba is the current speaker of parliament.[1] He was first elected on 3 April 2002, succeeding Sokrat Djindjolia, who was the speaker of parliament from 1996 until 2002. After the 2007 elections, Ashuba was reelected to the position of speaker, defeating Adgur Kharazia.[2]

The current deputy speakers are Albert Ovsepyan, Irina Agrba and Vyacheslav Tsugba. Until 2007, there had been only two deputy speakers, but on the iniative of President Sergei Bagapsh the Assembly decided to increase the number to three to allow for a woman to become deputy speaker.[3]

On 10 June 2008 deputy Omar Kvarchia suddenly died.[4] The resulting by-election was won by Emma Gamsonia.
