Dear student,
National Convention, French Convention Nationale, assembly that governed France from September 20, 1792, until October 26, 1795, during the most critical period of the French Revolution. Yes,it was a newly elected assembly It formed following the end of the Legislative Assembly and would later be replaced by the Directory.  The National Convention was extremely important to the events of the French Revolution. First, the convention was the first government in France based on universal male suffrage.  All males 25 years and older were allowed to vote for representatives of the National Convention, regardless of their class in society. Second, the first major act of the convention was to abolish the absolute monarchy and to transform France into a republic.Other were four different revolutionary governments, including National Assembly, Legislative Assembly, National Convention and the Directory

The National Convention was a single-chamber assembly in France from September 20, 1792, to October 26, 1795, during the French Revolution.  The Legislative Assembly decreed the provisional suspension of King Louis XVI and the convocation of a National Convention which was to draw up a constitution.
