The Congress of the Union is the national legislature of the Central Majatran Union of Kalopia-Wantuni. It is a bicameral legislature consisting of the lower House of Deputies (500 seats) and the upper House of Senators (100 seats). The Congress in its current form was established in the year 4000, following the Christofist Revolution.

FunctionsEdit

The Parliament is the representative body of the citizens in the republican institutions, and act accordingly. Under the Constitution of 4000, the two chambers of Congress hold the same legislative power, albeit With certain separate functions. The lower House of Deputies consists of 500 members, and is elected directly by the people. Deputies exercise major legislative power, but do not have the power to remove a cabinet without approval from the President of the Union, who heads the executive branch. Senators are elected semi-directly; that is, while they are elected based on political parties' share of the vote, voters do not have a direct influence in which specific senators represent them. The House of Senators is generally weaker than the lower chamber, and serves a primarily ceremonial role.

Electoral systemEdit

HistoryEdit

The current form of the Congress was established by the Constitution of 4000 following the 3993-3994 coup d'état, dubbed the Christofist Revolution. From 3994 to the year 4000, the country's previous constitution was suspended; despite this, the former incarnation remained. However, most opposition deputies were expelled, with the ruling Patriotic Socialist Movement winning a majority in the 3994 elections. For the following six years, the body functioned as a constitutional assembly, leading up to its reform as the Congress of the Union in 4000.
