of the Federal Union of Wegmat
Wegmat as the Kingdom of Ridab was an Absolute monarchy and had almost no democracy. The April 4 Acts established the Prime Ministry. Wegmat parliament was made up of two executive seats and three standard seats. The two executives were the Prime Minister and Speaker of Parliament. There was only one legitimate election to this model of government. During the covid pandemic no election was held as the current consitution had elections yearly. After the 2020 Weg Constitutional Convention a new parliament was created. The parliament would have 7 equal seats and had the power to nominate a prime minister.
Constitutinally, the parliament has no leader which is why one of the first laws passed by the new parliament was to establish the Chair of Parliament. The Chair is meant to be the chief of the governing party in Wegmat but has historically it has been Prime Minister Cole Baird. The Chair keeps order in parliament by being the leader of each session.
Parliament is not representative of any constituent or region and each seat represents all Weg people. Every weg citizen votes for seven candidates. The seven candidates with the popular vote are elected into parliament. In the case of a tie, a runoff election occurs.
Parliament used to meet in the Wegmat Capital Building, the Parliament Member’s School Cafeteria or most commonly the Wegmat Parliament Group Text Message. The chat has gone through many names such as Wegmat Parliament Group Chat, Danger Zone, group of idiots who think they have their own country, Chat of Cole, Chat of Bobby, Cum Fandom, and Group of Middle School Children Listening to a Mentally Disturbed LGBT Child.
After the Wegmat 2020 General Election parliament now meets on the Weg Discord Server or physically. Votes can either be casted electronically in the online chat or physically. Parliament has a session monthly where all proposed acts of the month are proposed to the members.
