The Congress of the Republic (Spanish: Congreso de la República) is the unicameral legislature of the Republic of Guatemala.

Constituencies

The Guatemalan Congress is made up of 158 deputies who are elected by direct universal suffrage to serve four-year terms. Twenty-nine of these are elected from nationwide lists, with the rest on a district list basis.

Each of Guatemalas's 22 departments serves as a district, with the exception of the department of Guatemala containing the capital, which on account of its size is divided into two (distrito central and distrito Guatemala).
