The Bundestag (German pronunciation: [ˈbʊndəstaːk],
‘Federal Diet’) is the German federal parliament. It can be compared to the chamber of deputies along the lines of the United States House of Representatives or the House of Commons of the United Kingdom.
Through the Bundesrat, the individual states of Germany participate in legislation similar to a second house in a bicameral parliament. It must be mentioned, however, that according to the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany (Grundgesetz, Constitution), these two chambers form constitutional bodies principally separate from each other, so to say not forming the German parliament. But they work closely together in most aspects of lawmaking on the federal level.
The Bundestag was established by article III of the 'Grundgesetz' in 1949 as one of the legislative bodies of Germany and thus the historical successor to the earlier Reichstag.
Since 1999 it has met in the Reichstag Building in Berlin. Wolfgang Schäuble is the current President of the Bundestag. Members of the Bundestag (Mitglieder des Bundestages) are usually elected every four years by all adult German citizens in a mixed system of constituency voting and list voting. The constitutional minimum number of seats is 598; with overhang and leveling seats there are currently 709 seats. The Election Day can be called earlier than four years after the last if the Federal Chancellor (Bundeskanzler) loses a vote of confidence and asks the Federal President (Bundespräsident) to dissolve the Bundestag in order to hold new general elections.
