The Republic of Burundi held several elections in 2005. The polls returned the nation to constitutional democratic rule after a devastating civil war that arose from long-standing ethnic tensions between the Hutu majority and the Tutsi minority.

Four of the polls (constitutional referendum; communal, National Assembly and "Hills" elections) were direct elections while two (Senate and presidential elections) were indirect, as they were chosen by communal councillors and the parliament, respectively.

See the list of political parties in Burundi for information about the parties.
23 September 2005 — "Hills" elections
According to the new constitution, each "Hill" (or district) is to be managed by a council made up of five members who are elected by direct vote for a term of five years. During these elections, the candidates presented themselves only as independents.
