Liechtenstein's parliament ('Landtag') comprises 25 members and, together with the Prince, forms the state's legislative branch.
The 25 members of parliament are elected for a period of four years via proportional representation. Liechtenstein is divided into two electoral constituencies: the Oberland (15 members of parliament) and the Unterland (10 members of parliament).
All laws passed by the parliament must be approved by the Prince, countersigned by the Prime Minister and published in the Liechtenstein Legal Gazette. Laws not approved by the Prince within six months do not come into force and are considered as having been rejected by the Prince.
