The Legislative Assembly is elected every five years, members are elected from multi-member constituencies by the single transferable vote. If a seat is left vacant a by-election is held in which a new member is elected by the alternate vote system.
Whilst the term of the Assembly is five years, it may be dissolved early by the President in the event of political deadlock in the Assembly in which a government has been dismissed or lost a no confidence motion and a new government cannot be formed after a month. This power has only ever been used once, in 2003 to resolve the 2003 British Constitutional Crisis.
Of the two houses in the British Parliament the Legislative is the more powerful of the two houses, choosing the government and having the final say in the event of a deadlock between the Legislative Assembly and the Seate.
