The Assembly of the Republic 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 Assembly of the Republic 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 Assembly of the Republic 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. In the current legislature there are 6 parliamentary groups and a Member of the Assembly of the Republic who is a political party's sole representative, which correspond to the political parties with Members who were elected in the legislative elections on 4 October 2015: the Social Democratic Party (PSD), the Socialist Party (PS), the Left Bloc (BE), the Portuguese Communist Party (PCP), the Social Democratic Centre – Popular Party (CDS-PP), the Ecologist Party –“The Greens” (PEV) and the Party for People, Animals and Nature (PAN).
