As Germany’s parliament, the German Bundestag stands at the centre of the country’s political life and is its supreme democratic organ of state.
Since 1999, the Bundestag has had its seat at the Reichstag Building in Berlin.
The President and Vice-Presidents of the German Bundestag constitute its Presidium, which is elected for the duration of the electoral term.

The German Bundestag is elected by the German people and is the forum where differing opinions about the policies the country should be pursuing are formulated and discussed.
A large proportion of the work done in Parliament goes on in the permanent committees, each of which is formed by a decision of the Bundestag for the duration of the whole electoral term.
