Constitution
Constitution of Burkina Faso

The unicameral National Assembly is the legislative body of Burkina Faso. In 1995, it became the lower house of a bicameral parliament, but the upper house (Chamber of Representatives) was abolished in 2002. The upper house was to have been restored under the name "Senate" in the June 2012 constitutional amendments.[1] This revision was never executed due to an extended and unresolved political confrontation over the Senate's establishment, which left the country effectively with a unicameral legislature as of the October 2014 constitutional crisis.[2]

On 30 October 2014, as part of the 2014 Burkinabé uprising, protesters stormed the parliament building and set fire to it, in anger at the parliament's decision to amend the Constitution of Burkina Faso to abolish term limits, which would have effectively paved the way for President Blaise Compaoré to remain in office for another five-year term.[3]

On 24 January 2022, during the January 2022 Burkinabé coup d'état, President Kaboré was detained and deposed by the military.[4] After the announcement, the military declared that the parliament and government had been dissolved.[5] In its place a transitional legislative assembly was sworn in on 22 March 2022.[6] It was also dissolved on 30 September after a coup d'état against interim President Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba.[7] A new transitional legislative assembly was sworn in on 11 November.[8]
