Monocameralism versus Bicameralism în Sistemul Constitutional Romanesc - Unicameralism versus Bicameralism in the Romanian Constitutional System (Romanian version)

    () (“Petre Andrei” University from Iasi)


Most countries with unicameral parliaments are unitary, non-federal states. These states considered from the very beginning that they do not need a second Chamber, The Upper House, or they had it dissolved later. Unicameralism advocates argue that Upper House’s commonly features , The Senate in our case , and the review of the legislation can be accomplished for example by Parliament’s committees. The main critic brought to bicameralism system was that it is not suited for a unitary state, as Romania, because it slows the legislative process, meanwhile the unicameralism system would be less expensive.
