The 2010–2015 Plurinational Legislative Assembly of Bolivia is the first class of the Bolivian legislature, also known as the Plurinational Legislative Assembly, to go by that name. The Assembly is controlled in both houses by the governing Movement for Socialism (MAS-IPSP), elected with a 2/3 supermajority. Just four incumbent members of the 2005–2010 Congress returned: Deputy Antonio Franco; Deputy Javier Zabaleta (MAS-IPSP/MSM); Senator René Martínez (MAS-IPSP), who was a deputy; and Senator Róger Pinto, previously of Podemos and now representing PPB-CN.[3]

The Assembly was elected as part of general elections on 12 October 2014. After the votes were counted, the results were as follows:
