The Congress of Cresia is the bicameral legislature of the national government of Cresia, consisting of the Senate and the Parliament. The Senate meets in the Senate House, while the Parliament meets in the Parliament House.

History[]

The concept of Parliament existed from the former Republic of Cresia. However, the Senate was created after the reunification to limit the influence of Avana, which had the largest population.

Elections[]

Both senators and members of Parliament are chosen through direct election. One half of the two hundred members of the Parliament represents a district, and the other half is elected by proportional representation. Each MP serves an ten-year term. Parliament seats are apportioned among the provinces by population. Each province, regardless of population, has three senators, while each territory and associated state has two; since there are sixteen provinces, two territories, and three associated states, there are fifty-eight senators who serve ten-year terms. The terms of the president and the Congress are staggered, so every five years, either the presidency or the Congress is up for election. Both senators and MPs are limited to three terms.
