Importance of the House of Representatives
The house of representatives distribute the same power as a lawmaker as mandated by the makers of the constitution. The main role of the house is to represent the popularity of its constituents and its congressmen were directly voted by the people.
Every place of city or province or area is guaranteed to represent one member to the house of congress and the allocation is based on the population of the said area. Each voted member of the house is selected by its voting citizen and holds in office for about two years in the congress. 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 law of the land or the constitution has authorized certain exclusive powers in the house of representatives to craft a bill and to initiate impeachment proceedings to 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 consolidation of the selected leaders such as the speaker of the house, the majority leaders as well as the minority leader plays an essential role in the operation of the house. In this scenario, there is a discipline in the house and the usual agitation on the bill will systematize and put in order.
Another governing element to imposed discipline in the plenary is the committee system which divides the members of the house to a specialized group to regulate the house procedures. Most of the chairmanship of the committee is selected by the majority of the ruling party and their responsibility is to act on the bill before presenting it to the floor. There are approximately 20 permanent committees in the house of representatives and each possesses a staff, subcommittee, and budget to implement their job. Their main job to hold hearings on proposed legislation before making it into a resolution and administer an investigation regarding public interest.
The house of congress has two definite roles, one is to make laws and the other is to examine closely the work of the government. Furthermore, the created bills and approved by the plenary are handed to the senate for more scrutinization before the final approval of the president. The obligation, duties, and rights of both chambers of parliament is based on the crafted constitution.
