The Republic of Burundi held legislative elections on 4 July 2005. Approximately 30 political parties and independents competed for 100 seats in the National Assembly. Voting was largely peaceful throughout the country during election day. Observers deemed the polls generally free, fair, and transparent.  Major political parties accepted the results as legitimate.
In order to ensure the 60%-40% ethnic split and 30% quota for women, a further 18 members, including the three Twa representatives foreseen by the Electoral Code, were co-opted after the elections.
As in the communal elections held a month earlier, the National Council for the Defense of Democracy-Forces for the Defense of Democracy (CNDD-FDD) won the most seats.
