Parliamentary diplomacy is an important component of an embassy’s mission in a given foreign country. Germany maintains a bilateral parliamentary system, with a Bundestag elected directly by the electorate as well as one upper chamber representing the German federal states, or Bundesländer, 16 in total.

Whereas France is also home to a bicameral legislature, namely a National Assembly (Assemblée nationale) with 577 seats as well as a 348-seat Senate, the upper house; elected partially by the country’s local councillors (in indirect elections) as well as by representatives of French citizens living abroad. Yaël Braun-Pivet is the incumbent National Assembly President.
