This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Seychelles

Seychelles elects on national level a head of state — the president — and a legislature. The president is elected for a five-year term by the people. The National Assembly/Assemblée Nationale has 34 members, elected for a term of five years, 25 members elected in single-seat constituencies and 9 members elected by proportional representation. Seychelles has a two-party system, which means that there are two dominant political parties, with extreme difficulty for anybody to achieve electoral success under the banner of any other party.
