The Urielandish National Congress is the main seat of the Legislative Power and law-making branch of the government of the Empire of Urielandia. Consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The principal duty of the National Congress is to issue and approve laws which become effective with the title of Imperial Law after being sanctioned by His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor. The last election took place on Saturday, June 30th, 2018 with the Urielandia First Movement wining the majority at the two chambers respectively. The opposition party is the Progressive Party of Urielandia. The constitutional period is four years, with possibility of the congressmen being reelected for another four year period. Furthermore the Congress begins its "legislative year" on February and ends in June so that the new legislative year begins the next month, July.

History and early development during the Republic (2011 - 2018)

After the establishment of Urielandia as a presidential republic on December 27, 2010, the Congress was inaugurated by the then-president of the Republic Uriel Bermudez, who became its first President during the first legislature (I Legislature) of the Congress until his resignation in 2013 being succeeded by the former vicepresident Gabriela Prieto. In 2012 the parliamentary elections took place, being the former Urielandish Democratic Party the leader of the majority in Senate and HR, and the Urielandish Convergent Party.

On May 18, the Constituent National Assembly approved the new constitution for the Empire and two brand new political parties were established: the Conservative Party of Urielandia and the Progressive Party of Urielandia, followed many weeks later by the Party of the Empire and the far-right nationalist movement Urielandia First.

During the Empire (2018 - present)

After the "Imperial Constitution" entered by force on May 18th, 2018, the Urielandish National Congress wasn´t dissolved but its functions remained the same. The Urielandish Tyrinist Party, then far-right political party Urielandia First Movement won the majority of the seats, followed by the Party of the Empire, the Conservative Party and the Progressive Party of Urielandia, which is the main opposition party.
