Notes: The results for one constituency were invalidated due to irregularities; The National Convergence "Kwa Na Kwa" is not a political party, but a coalition of political parties that are supportive of President François Bozizé.
The legislature of the Central African Republic was previously (at least as of 1990) a bicameral institution known as Congress, of which the National Assembly was the lower house; the upper house was called the Economic and Regional Council (French: Conseil Economique et Regional).
The National Assembly will be dissolved by Jan 11 2014 and new legislative elections will be held, according to a ceasefire agreement signed between the government and the Seleka rebel coalition on Jan 11 2013 in Libreville, Gabon. According to the agreement, a national unity government will be formed and a prime minister will be chosen from the opposition parties.
