The Senate is the national legislature of Likatonia. According to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Likatonia it alone possesses supremacy and thereby ultimate power over all other political bodies in Likatonia. Officially, it is lead by the Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of Likatonia. The Senate is the unicameral, democratically elected chamber with elections every three years unless a snap election is called.

As the legislative branch of Likatonia, the Senate performs the normal functions of a legislature in a parliamentary democracy.

Previous LegislatureEdit
