The House of Commons (French: Chambre des communes Chinese: 下议院) is a major component of the Delongo Ministry. The House of Commons is a democratically elected body, whose members are known as Members of Parliament (MPs). A MP's job is to represent their ridding, followed by their political party's view. There are 5,442 seats in the House of Commons. MPs are elected with a national proportional representation system. The party with the most votes wins either a majority or minority control of the House of Commons. If a party has minority control, it can ask the Governor General and another parties to form a coalition government, or can continue as a Minority Government, which means they must reach out to other political parties in order to be able to pass a bill into the senate where it could become law.

Seats in the House of Commons are adjusted every five years, and it is the job of the Parliamentary Management Committee to make sure that seats are adjusted for the proportion of the population or each riding. However, no riding may cross a provincial boundary, which makes things far more difficult. Some ridings end up being more populous then others.

The House of Commons was established when the Blix Empire began, but when Blix joined Canada it collapsed to become a Municipal Council, governing all of the Blix Regional Municipality. When Blix became the Province of Delongo it became the Legislative Assembly. Today, Delongo is its own nation, ergo it is a House of Commons once more.

Lords

The old House of Commons which was used from 1819 to 2009 in the New London Governmental House.

The Prime Minister is typically the leader of the governing party. At the beginning of each new Ministry (after each election), the Speaker asks for a Prime Minister. All parties put their leaders forward (typically), and the leader with a plurality of votes wins. These votes have always been along party lines, except with coalition governments. The Prime Minister then chooses a Deputy PM, who may be the leader of the smaller of the coalition parties, or simply someone with significant standing in the PM's party.

The President, to much confusion, does not sit in the House of Commons. The President sits in the Senate, along with the Governor General and (possibly) the Monarch of Rupertland. The President is also elected democratically at each election. As of 2017, there approximately 162,901 people within each seat.
