The Landtag, or also known in English as the Legislative Assembly of Uskor and in Swedish as the Folkting, is the legislative body of the Commonwealth of Uskor. It is a unicameral legislature and acts as the legislature for all Holds in Uskor. All delegates are either elected from their party lists or appointed by the High Queen of Uskor.
The current Landtag is in its first session since the restoration of the monarchy in Uskor in August 2017.
The Landtag’s sessions last for up to two years, however the High Queen may dissolve the Landtag at any point during a session on the advice of the Prime Minister following a motion of no confidence where a new Prime Minister was not recommended.
Powers and Authority
The Landtag has the authority to oversee Her Majesty’s Government, propose and pass legislation, amend legislation and repeal legislation, in addition to debating topics of national concern and pass resolutions concerning important national matters.
The Landtag also has the power to pass motions of no confidence in individual ministers or the Prime Minister, in the event of the Prime Minister loosing a motion of no confidence the Landtag shall attempt to nominate a new Prime Minister and cabinet, should this effort fail, the Prime Minister and cabinet must resign and advise the High Queen to hold a new election.
The Landtag also holds one of the powers to propose amendments to the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Uskor.
Legislative elections were held between October 13 and 15 2018 and allowed 350 voting rights in the Landtag to be elected in accordance with closed party lists and write in options.
The two largest parties in the Landtag the Labour Party and the People’s Party alongside independent Kellie von Neu Schellenberg who replaced successful write in candidate Maxine Goldman form the Fatherland Union coalition and subsequently hold a majority of votes that delegates may exercise in the Landtag.

All 350 votes are elected using party list electoral system with additional option for write ins, in which Uskorian citizens vote for political parties or write in a candidate. Then, the votes are proportionally used to determine how many votes each political party will get in the Landtag.
Following an election and the proportional division of votes among parties and write in candidates, the votes are then assigned by the party to delegates who exercise those votes for the remainder of the current Landtag session unless they resign their votes back to the party which delegated them to the resigning delegate.
The High Queen may also appoint delegates directly to the Landtag each session with each appointed delegate receiving one vote.
