History

For most of Lurk's history, a similar organ, called the Great Assembly, or All-Union Great Assembly, existed. It was, unlike the National Assembly, an unicameral legislature that was mostly inactive. The longest serving member was the Premier of the Lurk Federation, and at certain points even the only one. No sessions were held, the Premier only issued laws under its authority or by decrees. In the Noble Republic of Lurk, it transformed into the National Assembly of Lurk and became bicameral, despite the upper house being suspended.

Lurk Federation

The Great Assembly was, with the Premier, the only legislative body in the whole nation and enjoyed power limited only by the constiution.

Noble Republic of Lurk

The Great Assembly reviews every law proposal before a referendum is created. The Assembly must review its constitutionality and if it is not with contradiction to other laws. However, since the adoption of the Second Constitution, it has greater legislative powers comparable to any National parliament.
