This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.
Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:
- To get any seats in parliament a party has to get 5% of votes.
- National still has to listen to the other parties since they only got a bit over 50% of votes.
- That you get two votes at the general election, one for a party and one for your local MP.
