Data on parliamentary sessions, parliamentary committees and parliamentary groups.


Number of days parliament met in plenary, per year
Notes For some parliaments, data can not be presented on an annual basis, for example because parliamentary sessions run from April to March of the following year. In such cases, the period to which the data corresponds is specified here.
Until 24 May 2019 the parliament operated as a unicameral body, thus the parliament met for 31 days before, and the Senate met separately from the House of Representatives for 29 days after.


Number of permanent committees This number does not include sub-committees or joint committees in bicameral parliaments.

Parliamentary groups

Number of parliamentary groups
Not applicable. There is no minimum number of members to form a parliamentary group
