The National Legislature (Arabic: المجلس التشريعي السوداني, Al-Maǧlis al-Ttašriyʿiy) is the legislative branch of the government of the Republic of the Sudan.

Prior to the 2019 coup d'état, the National Legislature was composed of two chambers:

The National Legislature was dissolved on 11 April 2019 following the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir and his National Congress Party in a military coup.[1]

As part of the 2019 Sudanese transition to democracy, a Transitional Legislative Council is to be formed which will function as the legislature of Sudan until elections scheduled for 2022.[2]

Parliament building

The seat of the National Legislature is in Omdurman, immediately north-west of the country's capital Khartoum. The building was designed in the style of brutalist architecture by the Romanian architect Cezar Lăzărescu and completed in 1978.[3] It is located on the banks of the White Nile at the confluence with the Blue Nile near the old Omdurman bridge.
