The Chamber of Representatives, officially the Chamber of Representatives of Roscamistan or simply the Chamber, is the lower house of the National Assembly of Roscamistan, the other house being the Senate (not the same as the Senat, the predecessor body to the Senate). The Chamber’s members are representatives. The Chamber is the more powerful of the two in the bicameral National Assembly. The Chamber also can also start impeachment proceedings against any member of government, and if the impeachment is successful, then the impeachment trials happen in the Senate.

History

The Chamber of Representatives was created on 2 February 2022, when the Unterhaus was abolished by executive order 42. The rest of the Reichstag, including the Senat was also abolished with it. The Chamber was created to be the new lower house for a bicameral legislature.

Election system and composition

Election system

The Chamber is elected by closed party list proportional representation, in which people vote for lists of candidates (nearly always made and agreed upon by parties). If a party were to gain a total of 27% of the vote, it would send 27% of the people on the list. There is a legal threshold of 5% needed to send representatives to the chamber.

Composition

The chamber is composed of 16 representatives. The chamber is composed of two caucuses, the Majority and the Minority. Both sides are led by a leader, with those leaders appointing a whip to keep members in line with what the caucus votes with. The President of the Chamber acts as the presiding officer and speaker of the Chamber. There is also a Deputy President of the Chamber who acts on behalf of the President when needed. The Dean of the Chamber acts as an administrative head of the Chamber, keeping track of bills, debates and votes. [1]
