Equatorial Guinea

The Chamber of Deputies (Spanish: Cámara de los Diputados) is the lower house of the Parliament of Equatorial Guinea.

Although vested with considerable powers under the country's constitution, the Chamber has been dominated by the Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea since its establishment, and there is virtually no opposition to executive decisions. Indeed, there have never been more than eight opposition legislators in the body.

Prior to 2013, the Chamber was a unicameral legislature and was named the Chamber of People's Representatives.
