The Chamber of Deputies (Francillian: Kammer vun Deputéierten, French: Chambre des Députés) was the unicameral national legislature of the Democratic Duchy of Francisville. Sometimes simply called the Parliament or d'Kammer, it was annually by the system of single transferable vote. It was also responsible for election of the First Minister of Francisville.
Election and Functions
The function of the Chamber of Deputies were defined by the Constiution of the Democratic Duchy of Francsville, articles 41-55. As a representative democracy, all constitutional and legislative power was vested in the Parliament. According to the constitution, the Chamber:
- enacted and amended legislation
- elected the First Minister of Francisville
- amended the Constitution (with the exception of Rights of the People)
- called national referendums
- enacted and regulated taxation
- approved the national budget
- regulated local authorities
- declared war and coordinated defence
The Chamber of Deputies was elected annually using the single transferable vote. Deputies were elected from a national list but this was not specified by the constitution. Constituencies could therefore have been used if the number of members had increased. The Chamber was composed of at least one deputy, with an additional deputy per every five citizens.
The first assembly of the Chamber of Deputies was elected on 28 May to 3 June 2009. Two parties stood candidates and each gained one seat; the centre-left Francillian National Liberal party, and the centre-right Francillian National Democratic party.
|Francillian National Democratic||1|
|Francillian National Liberal||1|
The second assembly of the Chamber of Deputies was elected on 28 May to 3 June 2010. All deputies were elected as independents.
