In Turkey, Legislative power is granted to the Grand National Assembly, a one-chamber parliament composed of 550 deputies, who are elected every four years. The Grand National Assembly writes legislation, supervises the Council of Ministers, and adopts the budget. The president can be voted out of office by a vote of threequarters of Grand National Assembly members.

Members are elected by lists drawn up for each party by the relative parties’ leaders. The members elected have immunity from prosecution.
