General elections were held in Mozambique in 1977. They were the first elections after independence from Portugal, and FRELIMO was the sole legal party.[1]

Direct elections were only held for local and city councils, starting on 25 September.[2] These councils then elected District Assemblies, which in turn elected Provincial Assemblies. FRELIMO produced a single list of candidates for the 210-seat People's Assembly, the country's top legislative body, which was unanimously adopted by the Provincial Assemblies at their first session.[3]
