The Legislative Parliament is a Building located in the Planet of Pax, holding the Legislative power of the Empire of Mankind, and by so, making it one of the Three Capitals of the Empire. A large Parliament holds all High Legislators, in charge of producing, discussing and write down laws to be effectively applied in the Nation. The Laws have to be later be ratified and signed by the Imperial Senate and the Emperor.
The Legislative Parliament was made in order to counterbalance the power of the Emperor and the Senate, and make it more accessible to the Common Citizens.
The Legislative Parliament was built after the Foundation of the Empire, under an already legislative building during the Era of the Republic of Anthropos. During the Empire, the Building had some relative power, due to the bad memories the previous parliament had cause the nation. It wasn't ruled by parties but rather by elected Legislators.
After the Nobility War, the Emperor took much power held by the Nobility and the Senate and give it to the Popular government bodies, such as the Imperial Supreme Court and the Legislative Parliament. Due to this, the Power and range of Action of this body largely increased.
The Building has been expanding over the Millennia with the Imperial Family and the Local High Noble House expanding the building several times.
Election of High Legislators
The Elections are held every 5 years. The High Legislators can only be held by common citizens. All Nobility is forbidden to be elected or present themselves for the Legislative Parliament. This means that the parliamentarians get to this position thanks to their own merit and through an election campaign. These are low key and state financed.
Every System or group of Systems with the required amount of population gets to send a representative to the Parliament to defend their interests and debate on the matters of the nation and which regulations can suit the country better.
The Parliament is divided in two Chambers. The Low Chamber helds all the High Legislators of the nation, up to 580 000. The High Chambers holds 50 seats in total, with 25 belonging to the most populated systems. The other 25 are given to members of the Low Chamber and change in turn every election.
