The Assembly of Melilla (Spanish: Asamblea de Melilla) is the regional legislature[citation needed] of the autonomous city of Melilla, an exclave of Spain located on the north coast of Africa.

The Assembly has 25 members, elected by universal suffrage. Following an election, the members of the Assembly select a Mayor-President to serve as the head of government for the city. In the 2015 Melilla Assembly election, the People's Party (PP) fell one seat short of a majority, with 12 out of 25 available seats, requiring support from the sole Populars in Freedom Party (PPL) member to continue governing. In the 2019 Melilla Assembly election, the PP fell three seats short of a majority; an alternative majority was formed headed by the sole member from Citizens (Cs) and supported by the eight members from Coalition for Melilla (CPM) and the fours members from the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE).
