1989 Guinea-Bissau parliamentary election

Indirect parliamentary elections were held in Guinea-Bissau on 15 June 1989. At the time, the country was a one-party state with the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde as the sole legal party. Voter turnout was 53.2%,[1] and around 60% of the Assembly members were elected for the first time.[2] The Assembly re-elected João Bernardo Vieira to the post of President on 19 June.[3]

Electoral system


The indirect election saw voters elect the 473 members of eight regional councils on 1 June, who in turn elected the 150 members of the National People's Assembly on 15 June.[4] At least 50% of registered voters had to cast ballot in an electoral district for the election to be valid.[4] Anyone aged at least 18 and with Guinea-Bissau citizenship was entitled to vote, unless they had been disqualified, whilst candidates had to be at least 21 years old.[4]
