The Volkstag (literally "People’s Diet", in German), is the lower chamber of the Reichsversammlung, the legislature of the Abeldane Empire. Its members are elected through party lists in single nationwide electoral district. There are presently twelve elected seats in the Volkstag, plus one appointed seat.

The Volkstag is responsible for enacting and repealing laws (known as the Acts of the Parliament). These acts require the approval of the Bundesrat, the upper chamber of the legislature. The Volkstag must also approve legislation originating in the Bundesrat.

History

The Volkstag was established on 1 August 2020, with the enactment of the Constitutional Reform Act of 2020, which transformed the Reichsversammlung from a unicameral body, as it had been since independence in 2014, to a bicameral one. The Reichsversammlung as of the date of the enactment of the amendment was transformed into being the Volkstag, with the only change being the removal of the seat of the ervecysarich, the heir to the Abeldane throne.

Powers

Duration

A term of the Volkstag lasts 6 months, unless cut short by a snap election.

Presiding officers

The Volkstag is presided over by the Speaker of the Volkstag, who is a member of the chamber, elected by the other members. A speaker serves until resignation or until they are challenged. The speaker sets the agenda for each meeting, and is tasked with presiding over and keeping order during a session. They are aided in their duties by 3 deputy speakers, also elected by the Volkstag.
