Elections to the French National Assembly were held in Guinea on 17 June 1951. The number of seats Guinea had in the Assembly had increased from two to three.[1] Suffrage was also extended, with the number of registered voters increasing from 131,309 in the 1946 election to 393,628 in 1951,[1] although voter turnout decreased from 73% to 57%.

The Socialist List of the Guinean Union won two seats (Yacine Diallo and Albert Liurette) with the Guinean Agreement winning the other (Mamba Sano).[2]
