Penang State Assembly BuildingPenang State Assembly Building (4 June, 2006)

Penang State Assembly, or Dewan Undangan Negeri, is a unicameral state legislature. That means, there is only one legislative chamber, which is located at the Penang State Assembly Building, or Bangunan Dewan Undangan Negeri Pulau Pinang. The State Assembly of Penang has 40 seats occupied by members called state assemblymen, or ahli dewan undangan negeri, and usually known by the acronym ADUN.

Following the 2013 general elections, 30 of the seats in the State Assembly are held by the Pakatan Rakyat coalition, of which 19 seats are held by the Democratic Action Pary, 9 by Parti Keadilan Rakyat, and 1 by Parti Islam Se-Malaysia. Together, these parties form the state government. The remaining 10 seats are held by the Barisan Nasional coalition, which forms the state opposition.

From among the elected assemblymen in the Legislative Assembly, the Chief Minister of Penang appoints to the Executive Committee, usually known as Ex-Co. The following are members of the Executive Committee:
  1. Y.A.M Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister
  2. YB Dato' Haji Mohd Rashid bin Hasnon, Deputy Chief Minister 1
  3. YB Prof. Dr. Ramasamy a/l Palanisamy, Deputy Chief Minister 2
  4. YB Chow Kon Yeow
