The Parliament of the Algardian Republic is the supreme legislative body of the Algardian Republic, dependencies and overseas territories. Parliament is bicameral but has three parts, consisting of the President, the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies (primary chamber).

Majority of senators are appointed by the President and members of the chamber of deputies are elected by the public. By convention, all government ministers, including prime minister, are members of the Chamber of Deputies.


The parliament was established on 7 July 2022. It is younger than the office of President but was founded before the role of Prime Minister of Algard was established later on the same day.

Composition and Powers

Assent is required from the President is required for all Bills to become law, and certain delegated legislation must be made by the President by Executive Decree. The Prime Minister and government are directly accountable to Parliament and to the public, through the election of members of parliament.

The President also appoints the Prime Minister, who then forms a government from members of the Parliament. This must be someone who could command a majority in a confidence vote in the Chamber of Deputies.

Legislative Procedure

Both houses are presided over a speaker. The Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, commonly called the Chamber Speaker, for the lower house and the Speaker of the Senate, commonly called the Senate Speaker, for the upper house.

Legislative Functions

Laws can be made by Acts of Parliament. Laws, in draft form known as bills, may be introduced by any member of either House. A bill introduced by a Minister is known as a "Government Bill".

Each Bill goes through several stages in each House. The first stage, called the first reading, is a formality. At the second reading, the general principles of the bill are debated, and the House may vote to reject the bill. The last stage of a bill involves the granting of the Presidential Assent. The President has the absolute power to withhold assent to Bills passed by Parliament (i.e. to veto without parliamentary override).


The primary privilege enjoyed by both Houses is that of freedom of speech in debate; nothing said in either House may be questioned in any court or other institution outside Parliament.
