National Congress

The power of Democracy is vested in the majority and in the minority its principle.

The principle of representation for the Congress is one riding one vote. The dual electoral system is used for the national Congress. That means the top two candidates for the nomination in each riding are elected to the national Congress. In the regular session each member has one vote that’s two votes for each riding. For the legislative session each riding has five votes split between the two members in proportion to their nomination vote. Congressional approval is required for all resolutions and bylaws. The Congress votes concurrently with the National Assembly.
