Parliamentary elections were held in Benin on 28 March 1995, although voting for thirteen seats was re-run on 28 May after the Supreme Court invalidated the results due to irregularities. The Democratic Renewal Party emerged as the largest party in the National Assembly, winning 19 of the 83 seats. Voter turnout was 75.8%.[1]
