National Assembly (Madagascar)

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Madagascar

The Parliament has two chambers. The lower house is the National Assembly (Antenimieram-Pirenena/Assemblée Nationale).

The Assembly has 160 members, elected for a four year term in single-member and two-member constituencies. The constituences are the 116 districts that Madagascar is divided into.

The Senate (Antenimieran-Doholona/Sénat) has 33 members; 22 are elected, one from each district of Madagascar, and 11 more are appointed.

The last election was held on 23 September 2007. The number of deputies was reduced to 127, meaning that very few districts elected more than one member. Each of the six districts in Antananarivo elected two deputies.
