The results tighten President Yahya Jammeh's grip on power
His Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction (APRC) party won 42 of the 48 elected seats in the National Assembly.
Two opposition parties took five remaining seats, with one going to an independent.
Five more seats are to be filled by appointees of President Jammeh.
Mr Jammeh was re-elected last September.
