The Supreme Assembly or National Assembly (Oliy Majlis) is the parliament of Uzbekistan. It succeeded the Supreme Soviet in 1995, and was unicameral until a reform implemented in January 2005 created a second chamber.
The Legislative Chamber has 150 deputies elected from territorial constituencies. The Senate has 100 members, 84 elected from the regions, from the Autonomous Republic of Karakalpakstan and from the capital, Tashkent, and an additional 16 nominated by the President of Uzbekistan.
Both houses have five-year terms.
In the first ten years of independence (February 1995–January 2005) the Chairman of the then unicameral Supreme Assembly of Uzbekistan was Erkin Khalilov, who had been Acting Chairman of the Supreme Soviet 1993–1995. Since 2005 the Senate and Legislative Chamber have each had their own presiding officer
