The National Congress (French: Congrès national) is the unicameral legislature of the Georgienstine. The Congress is composed of 16 elected congresspeople. The Congress is charged with the passage of federal legislation, known as bills, which are sent to the president for consideration. The Congress also has exclusive powers: it initiates all revenue bills, impeaches federal officers, and elects the president if the two candidates in the runoff are tied. The Congress meets in the south wing of 1 Castel Street. The composition and powers of the National Congress are established by Article One of the Georgienstinian Constitution.

The presiding officer is the Speaker of the National Congress, who is elected by the members thereof. The Speaker and other floor leaders are chosen by the Majority Caucus or the Minority Caucus, depending on which party controls the Majority Caucus.

Notes

  1. The National Congress failed to elect a speaker in the latest speaker election. Dean of the National Congress Raphaël Olivier exercises the duties of the office.
