Chamber of Deputies
Parliament of the Czech Republic


and Members

The Chamber of Deputies has 200 deputies elected for four-year terms. The passive right to vote (the right to be elected) is limited to citizens of the Czech Republic who have reached the age of 21. For elections to the Chamber of Deputies, the Constitution stipulates the electoral system of proportional representation. Visit Arrow

Office of the Chamber

The exercise of the mandate of a deputy is inconceivable without the professional administrative and technical support provided for the deputies by the Office of the Chamber of Deputies. The exclusion of parliamentary staff from the civil service system is based on the principle of protecting the parliament from interference by the executive. Visit Arrow


The Visitor Centre provides the public with information on current events in the Chamber of Deputies as well as on the functions and bodies of the lower house of the Parliament. We pay special attention to schools and other educational institutions. We particularly focus on topics relating to parliamentarism, legislative process, parliamentary control of government and parliamentary history. Visit Arrow

EU & International

Parliamentary oversight of European affairs has a different form in each member state, reflecting the local customs and the constitutional traditions of that state. The Czech Republic has selected the model of a moderate oversight role of the Parliament with respect to the government, grounded in the information obligations of the government towards the parliament.
