  "Presidency" module
PARLINE database

The Presidency module includes information about Presiding Officers of individual parliamentary chambers and parliaments as a whole. Speakers not only occupy a privileged place in their respective legislative institutions but also rank very high in the State hierarchy and are usually invested with important authority under national Constitutions.

Use the Modules pages to view and export data for selected fields and selected countries. In this way, it is possible to compare various aspects of the different parliamentary systems.
