The Reichstag ("Parliament" when translated) is the legislative body of the Austrovian Empire. It's purpose, defined by the Austrovian Constitution of 2017, is to create laws, in which all citizens are expected to follow.

The Reichstag was created to replace the Congress of Austrovia after the successful "Governmental Reform Referendum" was passed. It has 30 members, which all are elected by the people of their respective states. The Reichstag officially became the only legislative body on November 21. Currently, 5 parties have seats in the Reichstag, with the Emperor being considered a non-partisan.

Purpose

As stated before, the Reichstag is the legislative body of the Empire and creates new laws that citizens follow. Before, the Congress acted as both the Legislative and Judicial branches of the Austrovia, giving it almost complete control over the government. Once the Austrovian Constitution of 2017 was ratified by Congress, it dictated that the Reichstag will only act as the legislative branch of government, while a new branch will be created for judicial purposes.

Election Process

The Reichstag previously had elections every 2 months, with some elections happen the same day as Federal Elections.
