House of Representatives[]

The House of Representatives (Dundorfian: das Repräsentantenhaus) is the lower house of the Llaqtese Parliament and considered the strongest legislative body in the Kingdom of Suyu Llaqta. It is elected through a mixed-member proportional election with 50 seats elected in a single member district election (First-past-the-post) with another 300 allocated proportionally. The House of Representatives is tasked with approving, ammending or rejecting draft proposals brought forward by the Council of Ministers. In the Llaqtese system, the Council of Ministers holds draft privilige meaning the government is the only party allowed to draft and propose legislation. The House of Representatives is then tasked with approving or rejecting this legislation and can also ammend it, which sends it back to the Council of Ministers for final approval before it is send to the House of Peers. The House of Representatives, though not allowed to draft legislation itself, is allowed to enact motions that the government must take seriously. The House of Representatives is also the body that appoints the Prime Minister, approves a Council of Ministers proposed by the Prime Minister and may declare war, issue parliamentary investigations and oversee government conduct. Without a majority in the House of Representatives a government cannot be formed.

House of Peers[]

The House of Peers (Dundorfian: Haus der Gleichen) is the upper house of the Llaqtese parliament and serves as the final check on government policy. The House of Peers is a fully appointed body, appointed by the Regional governments and the Monarch. HM Free Peers are those appointed by the monarch and are also known as "Crossbenchers", they consist of members from all walks of life with some special seats reserved for members of the Church while the others are often a mix of royalty and high praised individuals within society. The regions appoint the remaining 200 seats and often do so based on their regional governments composition or on previous election results in that region. These are often members of the parties also represented in the House of Representatives although there are no set rules on who the regions may appoint. The House of Peers is a very weak body, being subserviant to the House of Representatives. The House of Peers may only pass or reject legislation previously proposed by the government and passed by the House of Representatives. If the house of peers rejects legislation, this rejection can be overruled by a 2/3rd vote in the House of Representatives. Besides this limited legislative power the House of Peers can call on government ministers to answer questions about a bill but cannot enact motions in contrast to the House of Representatives. Its members serve a 6 year term.
