Bundestag is the lower parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany. Since Germany has a bicameral parliament, the Bundestag is the legislative structure of the country along with the Bundesrat which is a separate institution that also has eligibilities on the legislative issues. The main specification that differentiates Bundestag from Bundesrat is that in Bundestag, the laws affect state competences and all constitutional changes require the consent of this body. Compared to the United States of America, the Bundestag is the equivalent of the House of Representatives whereas the Bundesrat can be deemed as the equivalent of the Senate. The Bundestag was established in 1949 by the endorsement of Article III of the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany. In Germany, the legislative process is a task for the country’s parliaments, therefore the most important organ of the legislative branch is the Bundestag in the German Federation. Members of the Bundestag are elected by the German people to create an environment where all opposing ideas are being discussed between the parties to fully promote the democratic atmosphere within the politics. The most important assignments executed by the German Bundestag are the legislative process, the parliamentary scrutiny of the government and its work, the election of the German Federal Chancellor, and arranging the federal budget.
