Romania has a bicameral Parliament or Parlament that consists of the Senate or Senat (137 seats; members are elected by popular vote on a proportional representation basis to serve four-year terms) and the Chamber of Deputies or Camera Deputatilor (332 seats; members are elected by popular vote on a proportional representation basis to serve four-year terms). The President is elected by popular vote to serve a five-year term. Every Romanian citizen over 18 prior to the election day has an active right to vote. The precondition for passive suffrage is being over 23 years of age in the case of the House of Representatives and over 35 for the Senate. Elections are conducted by the election offices, on national level the central election office summarises the results and defines which political parties and alliances did not exceed the election threshold. After that the mandates for the senators and representatives are distributed in two phases - first on the level of county constituencies and then on the national level.
