The National Transition Council of Congo (French Conseil national de transition) was a political body in the Republic of the Congo[1] that was involved in the composition of the 1997 General Sassou Nguesso's government, setting up a 75-member body in the place of the parliament.

The National Transitional Council adopted a new Constitution of Congo in May 2001. The new Constitution enabled the government to choose the date of presidential, parliament and local elections.[2]
