Overview Edit

Whilst Baltusia officially has a 'Presidential System' of government, the Baltusian Congress is extremely powerful.

The 'President and Commander-in-Chief' fulfills the role of the executive, and only they have the right to introduce a cabinet. However, Congress has to pass a bill confirming it with at least 301 votes in favour.

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.

  • Pass or reject all bills and legislation
  • Propose and create laws/motions
  • Approve or reject cabinet proposals
