The Assembleia da República is currently made up of 230 Members elected by direct, universal suffrage of all Portuguese citizens who are registered to vote, be it in Portuguese territory or abroad. Members of the Assembleia da República represent the whole country, rather than just the constituencies for which they were elected. The Members’ term of office starts with the first sitting of the Assembleia da República following the elections and comes to an end with the first sitting following the subsequent elections, without prejudice to the suspension or termination of any individual mandate.
The Members elected for each party may form a parliamentary group.
