Writing of the Declaration of Independence

Unicameral

 

The term unicameral (see bicameral) means a single (one) chamber or house. A unicameral legislature consolidates legislative power within one legislative body.

 

Example:

 

The Constitution of the People’s Republic of China, which outlines the People’s Republic of China’s system of government (see Communism), established the legislature of the federal government in China as a unicameral legislature. There is one house, or chamber, known as the National People's Congress (NPC) which makes up the entirety of the legislature.
