Artsakh elects on a national level a president and a parliament. The president is elected for a five term by the people. The National Assembly (Azgayin Zhoghov) has 33 members, 16 elected for a five-year term in single seat constituencies and 17 by proportional representation. Nagorno Karabakh has a multi-party system, with numerous parties in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments. None of the elections have been recognized by any country or political entity. The Minsk Group believes the elections harm the peace talks [1]
