Legislative elections were held in Equatorial Guinea on 26 May 2013, alongside local elections. Following constitutional reforms approved in a 2011 referendum, they were the first elections in which the newly established Senate is elected.[1] The ruling Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea won all but one seat in both houses of Parliament.

Electoral system[edit]

The Senate has 70 members, of which 55 were elected and 15 were to be appointed by President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.[2]

The 100 members of the Chamber of People's Representatives were elected by closed list proportional representation in multi-member constituencies.[3]
