Names of legislatures

The legislatures are listed with their names in English and the name in the (most-used) native language of the country.


The names of the legislatures differ per country. Most used name seems to be National Assembly, but Parliament and Congress are often used too. The name Parliament is in some cases even used when in political science the legislature would be considered a congress. The upper house of the legislature is often named Senate. In some cases, countries use very traditional names. In germanic countries variations Thing (e.g. Folketing) are used. A thing or ting was the governing assembly in Germanic societies, made up of the free men of the community and presided by lawspeakers. A variant is the use of the word Tag or Dag (e.g. Bundestag, used because things were held at daylight and often lasted all day. Other traditional names are the Estates General and the variations of Sejm. In Islamic countries Majlis is often included in the name. This can be translated as "Council" or "Assembly". The National Assembly is the name of either a legislature, or the lower house of a bicameral legislature in some countries. ...
