Members of Parliament
In the 17th electoral term (2013 - 2018) the State Parliament consists of 180 parliamentarians of the Bavarian people.
The members of Parliament represent the people, not just a party or a group of voters. Their responsibility is towards only their conscience and they are not bound by assignments. The members of the Bavarian State Parliament are elected in general, equal, direct and secret election by secret ballot according to an improved proportional representation (PR) system by citizens eligible to vote in constituencies and sub-constituencies. The electoral term lasts five years.
