A Member of the National Assembly (MNA) represents your electoral division in the National Assembly. He or she may belong to the political party that forms the government or to an opposition party. In addition, he or she may sit as an independent member, meaning that he or she does not belong to any political group.
Among their many important responsibilities, MNAs must study, analyze and vote on bills. They also act as intermediaries between citizens and the government to ensure that citizens' interests are well protected. Attuned to the concerns and opinions of the people they represent, MNAs are able to take action on their behalf on various issues during National Assembly debates, among other things.
