The Mauritanian Parliament (Barlamane/Parlement) was made up, until 2017, of two chambers:

  • the National Assembly (Al Jamiya al-Wataniyah/Assemblée Nationale) has 146 members, elected for a five-year term in single-seat constituencies.
  • the Senate (Majlis al-Shuyukh/Sénat) had 56 members, 53 members elected for a six-year term by municipal councillors with one third renewed every two years and 3 members elected by Mauritanians abroad. It was abolished in 2017, after a referendum.
