The National Security and Stability Council, or the NSSC, is the executive branch of the Kuehongese government. A military junta, it is led by the Chairman of the Council, the Head of State, appointed among the 12 members of the NSSC. The NSSC is often considered to be the supreme governing body of Kuehong.

The Central Committee of Kuehong, a political body comprising all the high-ranking military officials in the country, nominally elects the members of the NSSC every five years. Nine out of the twelve Council members leads the individual states and the Bakdep Federal Territory as their respective High Commanders.

The NSSC succeeds the Central Security and Stability Congress (CSSC) on 30 April 1993, after a series of political restructuring within the Kuehong political system by then Chairman Ly Duc An. It dissolved some of the CSSC powers to the newly-created legislature the National Assembly. Still, the NSSC takes charge of critical political decisions, such as the redrafting of the constitution, the appointment of the Chief Assembly and dissolving or swearing-in of the National Assembly before and after the Assembly elections.
