The Legislative Council is the upper house of the Parliament of Anikatia of Anikatia. The House of Assembly is the lower house. The Council has 240 members, elected for a six-year term, but may be abridged if an early election is called. Unlike upper houses in most parliamentary systems, the Council is vested with significant power, including the capacity to block legislation initiated by the government in the House of Assembly, making it a hybrid system combining elements of the Westminster and UR-style bicameralism.
