This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.
Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:
- There are 120 seats in the house(121 if you include speaker)
- We are a democracy so everyone over 18 gets a vote/say but in some countries there is only a dictatorship so only one person gets a say.
- National( our government) didn’t gt enough votes to govern by themselves so they hd to pair up with other parties.
- Here is the link to my compare and contrast map explaining the difference between democracy and dictatorship.
