Importance of the House of Representatives
The house of representatives contributes parallel power as a lawmaker with the senate as designed by the Craftster of the constitution. The chamber’s main role was to represent the popular insistence and its representatives or members of the house were directly elected by the vast majority of the people.
Every state, zone or area of a certain city or province is guaranteed to have at least one member of the house of congress as its representatives and its allocation is based on the population of that area. Each member of the house or representative is chosen by its constituents by means of election and holds power to the house in a matter of two years. The constitution has the requirement that every member who is vying for the post to have the age of 25 and a pure citizen of the republic of at least 7 years and a resident of the place where he wants to be represented.
The constitution or the written laws has furnished an exclusive power to each member of the house to draft a bill and initiate impeachment against all unscrupulous officials. The whole institution of the house of congress is dominated under the control of the political parties and the synchronization of the events of the proceedings will be activated through necessary movements of the house. A combination of leaders such as the speaker of the house, minority leaders and majority leaders play an important role in the activity of the said congress. In this scenario, there is a discipline in the house and the usual agitation on the bill will systematize and put in order.
The committee system is another governing body that is set to impose the procedure of the house and its divide members have specialized assignments to regulate their tasks. Commonly, each committee is chaired by a member of the party majority ruling member and their main task is to act the bill before it is handed to the floor. In the house of congress, there are approximately 20 permanent committees that work on major policy and each has a staff, subcommittees, and budgets to work such implementation. The main objectives of the committees are to conduct a hearing on the proposed legislative bill before formally handing it to the floor and administer some investigation with regards to the public interest.
The house of representatives has two main roles, one is to create laws and the other is closely monitor and examine the work of the government. Moreover, the final and approved bills of the congress are handed over to the senate for further scrutiny before the final approval of the president. The obligation, duties, and rights of both chambers of parliament is based on the crafted constitution.
