The House of Representatives is elected for two years in the amount of 435 deputies from single-mandate constituencies. Senators are elected for six years; two from each state. Congress is created from the members of various committees: permanent joint committee of both Houses, who are working on bills, organizing parliamentary hearings, supervise the activities of the administration, etc., and temporary special committees to investigate specific issues. Chairmen of committees have more powers: they set the agenda, set the date of parliamentary hearings, choose the speakers at the plenary session of the Chamber on diverse bills, as well as possess diverse disciplinary powers (Calvi and Coleman 370).

The Electoral College is a group of electors representing the states of the United stated who formally cast votes for the election of the president and vice president. The Electoral College process consists of the selection of the electors, the meeting of the electors where they vote for President and Vice President, and the counting of the electoral votes by Congress.

Every four years, voters go to the polls and select a candidate for President and Vice-President.
An interesting part of their system is the election voting. Election voting in the UK consists of over 600 constituencies that each vote for a local member of the Parliament to represent their area. Each area generally has a representative from each of the running parties. The candidate in each constituency with the most votes at the end of election will become the member of the Parliament for that area (known as First-past-the-post).

If there were any citizens that were beginning to become too powerful or dangerous to the polis they were able to vote to ostracize that person.
