Notes The term of the legislature, elected in June 2009, was originally four years starting from 20 June and was due to expire on 20 June 2013. Due mainly to the stalemate over the new electoral law, on 31 May 2013, the National Assembly extended its mandate by a period of 17 months starting from 21 June 2013. The extended term was due to expire on 20 November 2014. On 5 November 2014, the National Assembly extended its term by 31 months. The extended term was due to expire on 20 June 2017. However, on 14 June 2017, the Cabinet approved a new electoral law, which provided for next parliamentary elections to be held between 20 March and 19 May 2018. The term of the outgoing legislature has been extended until 21 May 2018.
Last renewal dates 7 June 2009
