Abstract: The parliament, as the sole legislative body of a state, stems from the people's need to lay the foundations of democracy and to participate in decisions that affect them. In the first decade of transition to democracy, the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate adopted an impressive number of laws and regulations, as if to compensate for the communist period, in which the legislative flow was low.
