Members of the House | Speaker of the House

The House of Representatives, the lower house, is made up of 63 (previously 60) Members of Parliament, elected to five-year terms on a first-past-the-post basis in single-seat constituencies.

The Government in power can only exist if it has the support of the majority of the members of the House of Representatives.

In practice, most Bills are initiated in the House of Representatives.

No Bill may become law unless it is passed by a majority of the members present in the House. The quorum of the House is 16 in addition to the person presiding.

The House of Representatives has control over the Government’s finances. Funds cannot be granted nor taxation levied without the approval of the House.
