National Assembly of Czea
|National Assembly |
Asamblea Nacional (es)
|Speaker||Mateo Bastidas, SUP|
|political groups||SUP (2) |
The National Assembly of Czea is the lower house of the Supreme Council of Czea, that is supposed to represent all the Czean political parties, currently only two, the ruling Socialist Unity Party, backed by the government and constitution, must always have at least one seat in the National Assembly; and the Christian Democratic Party, that has less benefits.
The National Assembly was, along the People's Congress, part of the unicameral People's Cabildo that had only six members. When Emiliana Torroja successfully couped Czea and overthrow Juan Pablo Arimatea, the legislative system was radically changed and Czea passed to have a bicameral legislature, the Supreme Council of Czea. The bicameral Supreme Council is the current legislature of the Democratic People's Republic, and the National Assembly is the lower house, being the People's Congress the upper house. The National Assembly holds less power that the People's Congress, but the People's Congress has no say in some of the National Assembly's affairs.
The elections are conducted by the People's Congress, that elects a member for each party, and, in case that there are more than two parties, two assemblymen must be of the Socialist Unity Party and two of other parties. If there are more than four parties in election, then more seats shall be added to the National Assembly in order to represent all political parties in the lower legislature. In case the number of seats is par and the number of parties is not, then the majority must be hold by the SUP. The National Assembly members are elected for a term of two years, while the congressmen/women of the People's Congress are elected for four-year terms.
List of active assemblymen
The current assemblymen/women were not elected in the planed electorate system, but in a direct way by the First Secretary, since there was no time for a 6-day election of the People's Congress and a further election of the National Assembly.
