House of Representatives of Malta

The Parliament of Malta, the House of Representatives (Il-Kamra tar-Rappreżentanti), currently has 69 members, elected for a five year term in 13 5-seat constituencies with a possibility of rewarding bonus members for the popular largest party which doesn't succeed in getting absolute majority in parliament. The Parliament is presided by the Speaker of the House. The president is elected for a five year term by the parliament. Malta uses single transferable vote to elect its MP and local councillors. Even though transferrable preferences should help third parties since independence the Maltese electorate has consistently voted in two dominant political parties and effectively created a two party system.

The Grandmaster's Palace in Valletta is currently housing the House of Representatives of Malta.
