The Baltusian Congress is the unicameral legislature of Baltusia. They meet in Congress Building, which is located in Villita, Albiland State, Baltusia.

Powers Edit

Overview Edit

Baltusia's government runs on a 'Parliamentary System', leaving the Baltusian Congress extremely powerful and the President with only a symbolic position.

The 'Prime Minister of Baltusia' fulfills the role of the executive, but every party has the ability to propose a cabinet. However, Congress has to pass a bill confirming it with at least 301 votes in favour as well as every party included in the cabinet proposal voting yes.

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 by far.

Constitutional Powers Edit

  • Ability to amend the constitution with a 2/3rd majority
  • Pass or reject all bills and legislation
  • Propose and create laws/motions
  • Approve or reject cabinet proposals
  • Ratify treaties and international agreements
  • Pass or reject budgets
