The House of Senators is part of the Constitutional Council but, most of the time, it meet "alone". Its role is to debate the projects of law, to make suggestions and to check if the laws are constitutionals, morals, ethic... When a Deputies or a member of the Goverment want to pass a law, it go firstly through the Senate and if the Senate approves it it is voted by the Constituent State's Parliament. If the Senate disapproves a Law, it has to be changed or canceled

In the Constitutional Council (when it meets) it represents the Constitution and the Values of the State.

In the politic, they represent more the countrysides (it explains the amount of Conservatives/Patriotics Senators because of most provinces being rural Régions), the working class in the Industrial regions and the Bourgeois in the Free Cities. In brief, they don't represent an amount of people (like the Députés) but the Régions they are in.

Head of Provinces
In Monarchic and Sysillian Provinces, the Head of the Province is the local Noble, however he must obey to its king
In Régions (Civil Provinces), the Head of the Province is called Président of the Région and is elected by the People
In Republic and Carribean Provinces, the Head of the Province is called Président of the Republic and is elected by the Parliament (exactly like the Chancellor)
In Free Cities, the Head of the Province is called Mayor and is elected by the People

In all Provinces, the Noble/Président/Mayor share its Executive power with the Chancellor and a Préfet who is choosen by the King (triumvirat). Act of Centralization

To resume, at the head of a Province there is a Triumvirat (Note: Vir means Man in Latin but in this case women are allowed to be in a triumvirat).
In Republic (Republican Provinces of Beren, Geneva and Western Champagne) anc Carribbean Provinces, the Triumvirate is made of the Préfet (choosen by the King of the UK), the Président and the Chancellor. But as the Prés. and the Chanc. are elected by the same way (by the same parliament), they are supposed to be from the same party so they may take common decision (in this case, the parliament clearly has a big influence over the Triumvirat)

However in Monarchic and Sysillian Provinces the Préfet (choosen by the King) and the Local noble (the King himself or a noble who have sworn loyalty to him) clearly both obey to the King, so the King has a big influence over the Triumvirat.

In Régions and Free Cities, the Président and the Chancellor are in supposed to be from the same party (here, the Président is directly elected by its people and the Chancellor is indirectly elected by the People) so the People have a big influence over the Triumvirat.


Constituent States's Institutions:
There are two Kind of Constituent States:
Republic (Democratic) and Kingdom/Principalities (Monarchic)

- The Head of the State:
In a Republic, the Head of the State is a Président, elected every 5 years (Universal and Direct Voting)

Unitary Republic of Costa Rica: Leopoldo Curio (Liberal Party of Costa Rica)
Constituent Federal Grand-Principality of the West Indies: Otto de Zimt (Honorific), Octavien de Matre (Regional Party of Cuba)

In a Kingdom/Principality, the Head of the State is a Monarch
Union of Duchy of Zimt and Algamon under the Banner of the Kingdom of Algamonzimt: King Karl VII (Charles X) de Zimt
Kingdom of Grand-Aquitaine: King Charles I (Charles X) de Zimt
Crown of the Kingdom Burgundy By the Grace of its Nobles: King Charles II (Charles X) de Zimt
Kingdom of the United Provinces of the Alps: Louis I de Bourbon
Free Kingdom protected by France of Sysillia: Mathieu I de Montpitol
