How many MP's does your country have?

The Italian Parliament has roughly 1,000 members, don't know the exact number. What about your country?

In the US we have 535: 435 in the House of Representatives and 100 in the Senate. That's pretty low for a country of our size, although it's mitigated by the fact that we have state legislatures. For example, my state has 160 in the lower house and 40 in the upper house for about 7 million people.

Cyprus (Republic of) has 56 MPs at present. There are 80 seats but the rest remain empty as they are allocated for the Turkish Cypriot community. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of ... es_(Cyprus)

I think we have 588 which is way too much for a country of 21 million people.

I can't find the exact number of the Italian MP's. I know they're 630 Deputies and 315 ordinary Senators but can't find the number of Senators for life :\ .

In the Brazilian Congress we have, if I’m not mistaken, 594 seats (81 senators and 513 deputies). We have state legislatures, too.

P.S.: Brazil has a population of 201 million.

Finland has 200 MPs, and a population of 5.5 million.

I think the amount could be dropped to less, like maybe 150.

The Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) consists of 450 MPs, but currently there are 443, because at the latest general elections the government was falsifying the votes so carelessly that the Central Election Commission was unable to establish final results in seven single-mandate constituencies.

We have roughly 650 MPs in the House of Commons and around 750 peers in the House of Lords, so I suppose 1400 people in parliamentary legislative roles altogether.

Apparently, they do so much since I was asked to take my tuque off before entering into their pretty big room in the Parliament Building.

Currently we still have 386.

We have new laws and from 2014, there will be only 200 MPs in the parliament.

The population has just fell below 10 million.
