The unicameral Assembly replaced the Constituent Assembly and was elected on 26 October 2014.[1] The legislature consists of 217 seats.[2] Before the 2011 revolution, Tunisia's parliament was bicameral and consisted of an upper chamber called the Chamber of Advisors and a lower chamber called the Chamber of Deputies.

Its first speaker is Mohamed Ennaceur, deputy leader of Nidaa Tounes.[3]
