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.
Meanwhile, the most populous state in the Union has only 120 legislators overall (Assembly: 80, Senate: 40).Tand324 wrote:I live in a different state and we have the third largest english speaking legislature in the world with 400 members of the House of Representatives and 24 in the senate, thus a total of 424. Only the US and the UK are larger with 535 and 1410 respectively.
