The unicameral Assembly of the Republic (Portuguese: Assembleia da República) is the legislative body of Mozambique.

The current parliament has 250 members who are directly elected through a system of party-list proportional representation and serve five-year terms. Parties must receive at least five percent of the vote nationally to gain parliamentary representation. Currently only two parties are represented in the parliament, FRELIMO and the Democratic Movement of Mozambique. RENAMO MPs have refused to take office, since the party considers that the last election has been fraudulent.
