Parliamentary elections were held in Sudan between 1 and 12 April 1986. They were the first multi-party elections in the country since 1968, and saw a victory for the Umma Party, which emerged as the single largest party with 101 of the 260 seats in the National Assembly. No party emerged with a majority.

The election took place amidst the Second Sudanese Civil War, and voting was postponed indefinitely in 41 seats in Southern Sudan due to security concerns.[1] Voter turnout was 67.5%.[2]
