The National Legislature (, Al-Maǧlis al-Ttašriyʿiy as-Sūdāniy) is the parliament of Sudan. Sudan is currently in an interim (transitional) period following the signing of a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) on 9 January 2005 that officially ended the civil war between the Sudanese Government (based in Khartoum) and the southern-based Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) rebel group. The newly formed National Legislature, whose members were chosen in mid-2005, has two chambers.
The National Assembly (, Al-Maǧlis al-Waṭaniy as-Sūdāniy) consists of 450 appointed members who represent the government, former rebels, and other opposition political parties. The National Assembly is an appointed parliament and replaced the latest elected parliament.
The Council of States (, Al-Maǧlis al-Wilāyāt as-Sūdāniy) has 50 members who are indirectly elected by state legislatures.
All members of the National Legislature serve six-year terms.
