The Congress of Deputies (Congreso de los Diputados) is the lower house of the Spanish Parliament, known as the Cortes Generales. It is one of the two chambers of the Spanish Parliament, with the other being the Senate. The Congress of Deputies represents the people of Spain and is responsible for making laws, overseeing the governments performance, and addressing national issues. The Congress of Deputies consists of 350 members, known as deputies, who are elected through a system of proportional representation. The seats in the Congress are allocated among the different provinces and autonomous communities of Spain based on their population. Each province is guaranteed a minimum of two seats, while the remaining seats are distributed in proportion to the population of each province. The political party or coalition that secures a majority of seats in the Congress of Deputies forms the government and elects a Prime Minister from among its members. The Prime Minister is the head of government in Spain. The Congress of Deputies plays a crucial role in legislative matters, including passing bills, approving the national budget, and debating and discussing issues of national importance. It serves as a platform for representatives to voice the concerns and aspirations of the people they represent.
