Description:
The Assembly (Mejlis) is the legislative branch of Turkmenistan. It has 125 members, elected for a five-year term in single-seat constituencies.

History

Originally, it shared power with the People's Council.

A 2003 law reduced the power of the Assembly and augmented that of the People's Council. The Assembly can now be legally dissolved by the People's Council, is led by the President, and is no longer able to amend the Constitution.

The People's Council was abolished by a new constitution drafted by Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow in 2008, making the Assembly/Mejlis the unicameral (but apparently still "rubberstamp") parliament again.

The current chairperson is Akja Nuberdiyeva from December 21, 2006. She succeeded Owezgeldi Atayew.
