Myanmar's Union Assembly (Burmese: ???????????? ?????????[pjìdà??z? ] Pyidaungsu Hluttaw) is the Bi-Chamber legislation of Myanmar (officially known as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar) created by the 2008 NCC. Pyidaungsu Hluttaw consists of two buildings, the Amyotha Hluttaw (House of Nationalities), an upstairs building with 224 seats and the Pyithu Hluttaw, a lower building with 440 seats (House of Representatives).
The fourteen large administration areas and states each have their own specific area: Hluttaw: Hluttav Region (Regional Assembly) or State Haluttaw (State Assembly). There was no functioning Hluttav from 1962 to 1974, as the governing regime was the Union Council for Revolution. There was no functioning Hluttav between 1988 and 2011, as the governing coalition was the State Peace and Development Council.
Out of the 224 members in the building, the other 56 are appointed by the Commander-in-Chief of the Defense Service. Pyithu Hluttaw is the lower chamber of Pyidaungsu Hluttaw, with seating for each of the 330 communities in the state.
Out of the 440 members of this committee, 330 are directly appointed and 110 are appointed by the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services. Both Pyidaungsu Hluttaw homes are electoral at the same time, with deputies to serve five years. Nominee ministers chosen from the electoral deputies are vacating their seat in parliament.
Any by-election fixed by the Union Electoral Commission shall be carried out to select these free places. Pyidaungsu Hluttaw's first scheduled meeting must be called within 15 working hours after the beginning of the first one. Sittings in Parliament are only effective if 25% or more Members are present.
