The Parliament of Llorens consists of 100 members. The structure of the Parliament itself is in an arch, with parties negotiating where they are positioned, often on a scale from most left-wing to most right-wing across the span of the structure. The leader and vice-leader of the party or coalition government in power are the President and Vice-President respectively. To be eligible to run for office, a person must be a citizen of Llorens and of voting age, 16 years or older.
A proposed law can be addressed to the Parliament if it receives the endorsement of at least five members. All members are then notified of the bill one week prior to its discussion and vote within Parliament. The first session is called the Discussion Session, where one representative of each party is eligible to speak or ask questions on the proposed legislation. The legislation will proceed to the second session, called the Voting Session, once two-thirds (67 members) of the Parliament agree to proceed from discussion or three hours has elapsed. Each member then casts their vote in favour or against the proposal, most recently using an installed electronic mechanism. It requires a simple majority (51 members) to vote in favour to be passed.
