In accordance with the provisions of the 1992 constitution, the legislative elections of December 1994 and January 1995 produced a new 250-seat body, the Oliy Majlis (Supreme Assembly). Members of the unicameral (single-chamber) assembly are elected to five-year terms. The president is empowered to dissolve the Oliy Majlis and call for new elections. The Oliy Majlis replaced the 500-member Supreme Soviet (the legislature of the Soviet period), whose deputies had been elected in 1990.
