The National Assembly (Spanish: Asamblea Nacional), formerly the Legislative Assembly (Asamblea Legislativa), is the legislative branch of the government of the Republic of Panama.

It is a unicameral legislature, currently made up of 71 members, who serve five-year terms. Legislators from outlying rural districts are chosen on a plurality basis, while districts located in more populous towns and cities elect multiple legislators by means of a proportion-based formula. Panama's legislative elections are held simultaneous with its presidential elections.

Panama also returns a delegation of 20 deputies to the supranational Central American Parliament.
