HOUSE OF CITIZENS

VIII LEGISLATURE

The House of Citizens is the lower house of the Imperial Parliament of Adammia. It is comprised of a number of Members of Parliament (MPs) who are elected by party-list proportional representation using the D'Hondt method in a general election held once per year. The number of MPs is proportional to the total Adammic population. The House elects its own presiding Speaker, who can appoint up to two Deputy Speakers.

Like its counterpart, the Ruling Council, the House of Citizens must approve all Acts of Parliament before they can become law, and it has the power to overturn any Imperial Decree. The House of Citizens nominates the Prime Minister from amongst its own members; this means that the executive Imperial Government must have the confidence of the House of Citizens, and that the Prime Minister will usually be the leader of the largest party or coalition within the House. The government does not necessarily need the confidence of the Council, although attaining it would make it easier for the government to pass legislation. The House ordinarily meets online via a private Facebook group.
