Bundestag and Bundesrat

Legislative Institutions

“I think politicians should by all means be responsible for the representation of interests, they should, so to speak, represent the people and make possible what the people wants in order to provide the greatest possible wealth and satisfaction in society. That should be their goal.“

The German Bundestag is the parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany based in the Reichstag building in the Berlin-Mitte district. The Bundestag is the only constitutional body of the Federal Government that is directly elected by the people, the citizens.


This is stipulated in the Basic Law according to articles 20 and 38.
