Bolshoiskii Parliament (Indonesian: Parlemen Bolshoiskii) was the former unicameral legislature of Indokistan functioning from October 2011 until August 2012. The parliament was established as the effect of the controversial policy of De-Farhanization which resulting on the disbandment of the previous parliament, the Farhangrad. Bolshoiskii Parliament runs until August 2012, when it was frozen by the Emergency Government, and without regaining its legislative power, formally disbanded in March 2013 during the national reform. It was replaced by the National Forum.
The previous parliament, Farhangrad Parliament, was disbanded as effect of De-Farhanization in October 2011, solely because it was named after Farhan Abdurrahman. Bolshoiskii name was proposed by Nabil Ihsan and Dicky L. K. and originates from Russian word Bolshoi (большой), meaning "great" or "huge".
Bolshoiskii Parliament plays a vital role on establishing the first national constitution. After members of Indokistani society and parliament members signed a petition to show their support and asking parliament to ratify the proposed constitution previously presented on the parliament session, the Parliament voted for the constitution in a landslide.
After inactivity plagued the country in early 2012, the Parliament failed to be working, as its members refused to attend meetings, thus blocking government activities. With parliament inactivity as one of its justification, the Emergency Government was established in August 2012, and the new authority decided to freeze the Parliament and to relieve its entire members from parliamentary duty.
During the Federal Republic and the Third Republic following the end of the Emergency Government, parliamentary function was not restored to the Bolshoiskii Parliament, each authorities instead established its own parliaments with different nomenclature and compositions, while at the same time does not declare any decisions concerning on the Bolshoiskii Parliament. It was initially proposed that the previous parliament to have its entire function be restored, but it was opposed by politicians at that time, with Tian Abdurrahman for instance, opposed because the name "Bolshoiskii" was difficult to pronounce and write. During both eras, the parliament established was named "People's Council", without declaring itself the successor of the Bolshoiskii Parliament.
The Parliament was finally revived in January 2013, only to be dissolved after several sessions in March 2013, with its final resolution voted was on the dissolution of itself. The disbandment was responded in relief as the Parliament's fate was finally made clear. The National Forum was officially declared the successor of the Bolshoiskii Parliament.

Bolshoiskii Parliament begins with 9 members (excluding speaker), starting their term of office in October 2011. Those members are either from United Peoples Party or independents, because of Indokistani adherence on single-party policy at that time. The parliament does not entirely controlled by the ruling party, because the "independents" instead became the opposition for the government.
The parliament members started to abandon their office in early 2012, with their official termination of duty was only took place in August 2012, during the Emergency authority rule.
