The House of Representatives (Majlis al-Nuwaab) is the legislature of Yemen. The Assembly of Representatives has 301 members, elected for a six-year term in single-seat constituencies. The last election took place in 2003. The election was set for 27 April 2009, but presidentSaleh postponed them by two years on 24 February 2009. However, they did not take place on 27 April 2011 either and they were planned to be held alongside the next presidential election, sometime in February 2014. In January 2014, the final session of the National Dialogue Conference (NDC) announced that both elections had been delayed, and would occur within 9 months of a referendum on a new constitution which had yet to be drafted. However both the GPC and Houthi representatives on the National Authority for Monitoring the Implementation of NDC Outcomes have refused to vote on the new constitution drafted by the constitution drafting committee, which submitted it in January 2015.
In February 2015, the Houthis briefly dissolved parliament before reportedly agreeing to reinstate the 301-member assembly in UN-brokered talks. Under the agreement, it will be augmented by a "people's transitional council" serving as the upper house.
