The House of Representatives of Austenasia (formerly known as the Cabinet, but not to be confused with the present body of the same name) is the only house of the Parliament of Austenasia. The House of Representatives is a democratically elected body, consisting of a Representative elected from each Town and City in the Empire; at present, totaling six. Representatives are elected using the first-past-the-post system, with each Town and City required to have an election for its Representative no less than every five years.
Due to the nature of the office of Prime Minister, they are usually included in the House of Representatives as a locally elected Representative. However, even if the Prime Minister loses the office of Representative (as was the case with the then Crown Prince Jonathan between December 2011 and January 2013), they stay as Prime Minister and so while not being part of the House of Representatives may still attend Parliament meetings and cast a deciding vote if required. Representatives are the only people eligible to stand for the office of Prime Minister.
The office of Speaker of the House of Representatives was created by an Act of Parliament in October 2014 to preside over meetings of the House, elected by and from the Representatives. The incumbent Speaker, Lord William Wilson, has been in office since 1 June 2020.
