The Chamber of Deputies consists of a number of elected members, known as "Deputies", who represent each state. The number of Deputies for each state varies depending on each state's population.

To be elected a Deputy, Azorean Citizenship is required. There is no limit to the amount of terms a Deputy may serve.


The Senate consists of 2 Senators from each state, each are appointed by the Governor of each state. All ex-Presidents are guaranteed a spot on the Senate after they leave office if they wish to remain in Azorean politics. There are no term limits for those in the Senate.


Each house has unique powers. The Senate must approve a number of Presidential decisions including the appointment of Justices on the Supreme Court, Commissioning Military Officers as well as Ambassadors to foreign nations. The approval of both the Chamber and Senate is required to pass all legislation, unless it receives the President's signature or it is vetoed by the President.

Impeachment of Federal Officers
