Politicians seeking parliamentary seats in Guinea Bissau’s National People’s Assembly have until June 4, 2023, to convince voters of their votes.
The campaign which officially began on Saturday, is expected to usher in a new set of lawmakers after the previous house was dissolved exactly a year ago.

Two coalitions and at least twenty-two political parties are in the race for the 102 seats in the National Assembly.
