House of Commons
See also: Room
In the Bicameral Parliament of the System of Westminster, the House of Commons historically was the name of the elected Lower House. The House of Commons has generally much more capacities than the Upper House (the Sénat or the House of Lords, with the the United Kingdom). The chief of the party of the majority in the House of Commons becomes usually the Prime Minister.
The majority of the nations with a system of Westminster since changed the name of their Lower House into Chambre of the representatives. There are only two existing Houses of Commons. It is:
- the House of Commons the British (with the Palate of Westminster, London)
- the House of Commons of Canada (on the Hill of the Parliament, with Ottawa)
The House of Commons was also the Lower House of Ireland, before its abolition under the Loi of the union of 1801, and the Parlement of southernmost Ireland in 1920, which was later replaced by the Dáil of the free State Irish. In the same way, the House of Commons was the Lower House of the Northern Ireland before its abolition in 1972.
