Article 65 of the Constitution of Albania provides for a 4 year term for 140 elected members of Assembly. The election system was recently modified to a regional proportional representation system, with voters being able to cast preferential votes for individual candidates from party lists (Amendments to Constitution and Electoral Code in July and October 2020)
The Constitution reads as follows "The Assembly is elected every four years. The mandate of the Assembly starts with its first meeting after the elections and ends on the same date, of the same month of the fourth year from the date of the first meeting. In any case, the Assembly remains on duty until the first meeting of the newly elected Assembly. 2. Elections for the new Assembly are held in the nearest electoral period that precedes the date of the ending of the mandate of the Assembly. Electoral periods and the rules for holding the elections for the Assembly are determined by the law on elections."
