The National Assembly (Assemblée Nationale) has 180 members, elected for a five year term in 49 single and multi-seat constituencies. Cameroon is a one party dominant state with the Cameroon People's Democratic Movement in power. Opposition parties are allowed, but are widely considered to have no real chance of gaining power.
