The National Council (French: Conseil National) is the parliament (legislative body) of the Principality of Monaco. Its twenty four members are elected from lists by universal suffrage for five-year terms, and though it may act independently of the Prince, he may dissolve it at any time, provided that new elections be held within three months.

The Council meets at least twice per year to vote on the country's budget and vote on the bills proposed by the Prince's government. Ordinances (executive orders) are debated in the Council of Government and, once approved, must be submitted to the Prince within eighty days for his signature, which makes them legally enforceable. If he does not express opposition within ten days of submission, they become valid. The current president of the national council is Stéphane Valeri of UPM who was elected in February 2003.
