The Baltusian Congress can also hold early election motions. As with the Cabinet Proposal, for a snap election call to pass, at least 301 votes are needed in favour.

To add to that, any piece of legislation, whether it originated in Congress or in the executive must be approved by the legislative. As a result, Congress is regarded as the most powerful body.
