Electoral system

The National Assembly is elected every five years by universal suffrage. For the 2018 elections the 500 seats of the assembly were apportioned among 181 electoral districts based on voter registration numbers. This resulted in 62 members elected in single member constituencies by first-past-the-post and the remaining 438 members elected in multi-member constituencies by open list.
