The legislature lies with the National Assembly (Assemblée nationale), whose 83 members are elected for 4 years. The Economic and Social Council (30 members) has an advisory role. The constitution fixes fundamental rights and freedoms, a multi-party system and the separation of powers. Check cellphoneexplorer to see Central Africa Travel Guide.
