It was elected in the general election of 22 April 2009, and first met on 6 May of that year to elect Jacob Zuma as the fourth President of South Africa. It was formally opened by the newly elected President's State of the Nation address in a joint sitting on 3 June 2009.

The Speaker of the National Assembly is Max Sisulu of the ANC and the Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces is M. J. Mahlangu, also of the ANC.
