The Council of the Republic (Belarusian: Савет Рэспублікі, Saviet Respubliki; Russian: Совет Республики, Sovet Respubliki) is the upper house in Belarus' bicameral parliament, the National Assembly. The Council consists of 64 members, and the representation is based geographically, with most of the elected members come from civil society organizations, labour collectives and public associations in their jurisdiction. Each oblast (six) and the city of Minsk (the national capital) are represented by eight members, and an additional eight members are appointed to the council via presidential quota.

The Council of the Republic was established in 1997 to replace Supreme Soviet of Belarus.[1]
