Edinburgh South West (UK Parliament Constituency)
In modern politics and history, a parliament is a legislative, elected body of government. Generally, a modern parliament has three functions: representing the electorate, making laws, and overseeing the government via hearings and inquiries.

Historically, parliaments included various kinds of deliberative, consultative, and judicial assemblies, e.g
