The Parliament of Pontunia is the supreme legislative body of the Kingdom of Pontunia and its vassals. It alone possesses legislative supremacy and thereby ultimate power over all other political bodies in Pontunia. The Parliament is unicameral but has two parts, consisting of the sovereign (Crown-in-Parliament), and the Estates General (the primary chamber).

The Estates General is a de jure democratically elected body, consisting of 10 Members of Parliament. MPs are elected using single transferrable voting.

The Royal Assembly meets with the Monarch and Chief Minister to make new laws. When in this legislative role, they are collectively known as Parliament.

Due to the nature of the office of Chief Minister, they are usually included in the Royal Assembly as an elected MP. MPs are the only people eligible to stand for the office of Chief Minister.
