Parliament of the Abeldane Empire

Leader of the Opposition
|HI&REM Government (12):|
|21 December 2018|
The Reichsversammlung, literally gathering place in German or also known in English as the Parliament of Abelden, is the legislative body of the Abeldane Empire. It is a unicameral legislature and acts as the legislature for all federal states in Abelden. All members are representatives from each federal states and currently there are 12-seats.
The current Reichsversammlung is in its seventh since the foundation of the legislature on 6 June 2014, although it has seen changes and reforms along the way. Originally named as the Abeldane Parliament, it was renamed to Reichsversammlung in 2015 so as to give way to the cultural naming diversity Abelden has. The Reichsversammlung has the right to approve any laws and repeal them and has the approval rights for all the actions done by the Monarch and therefore no act by the Monarch can be done without the approval of the Reichsversammlung.
Powers and Authority
The Reichsversammlung has the power to legislate new laws and propose new laws in the Empire and has the authority to overturn decisions made by the Emperor.
Legislative elections were held on 6 April 2018 and allowed 16 seats of the Reichsversammlung to be elected using closed party-list proportional system with a nationwide list. The Reichsversammlung (Composition) Act 2018 amended the seats of the Reichsversammlung and returned back the appointed seat reserved by appointment of the Monarch and another appointed seat solely for the Ervecysarich. As of now, the appointed seat remains vacant until an appointment is made by the Emperor. There are currently four political parties in the Reichsversammlung of which the Abeldane Liberal National Alliance (ALNA) is the largest.

|Politics and government|
of the Abeldane Empire
All 16 elected seats are currently delegated by the party list electoral system, in which Abeldane citizens vote for political parties. Then, the votes are proportionally used to determine how many seats each political party will get in the Reichsversammlung.
Before the federalization took effect, each MPs were appointed per city/town that served as their respective constituency because of the low administrative regions in Abelden. Although crown dependencies and territories before will only have one representation in the Reichsversammlung, representing them as a crown dependency or a territory and not by cities. Each cities served as a seat. Reform afterwards changed the system in which each state was delegated seats. However, for the December election, Abelden switched to the party list system still used today. As per the Reichsversammlung (Composition) Act 2018 there are two appointed seats, two seats are appointed to a representative of the Monarch's choosing and one reserved for the Ervecysarich.
