Elections to the National Assembly are held every four years. The latest legislative elections were held on 15 April 2020. Single-member constituencies comprise 253 of the assembly's seats, while the remaining 47 are allocated by proportional representation, 30 of which are used to compensate for the Single-member constituencies. Members serve four-year terms.
