Section 1 of the Constitution of Australia recites that the power to make laws of the Commonwealth of Australia will be vested in a Federal Parliament, which shall consist of the Queen, a Senate, and a House of Representatives.
The politics of Australia take place within the framework of a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy. Australians elect parliamentarians to the federal Parliament of Australia, a bicameral body which incorporates elements of the fused executive inherited from the Westminster system, and a strong federalist senate, adopted from the United States Congress. Australia largely operates as a two-party system in which voting is compulsory. The Economist Intelligence Unit has rated Australia as a "full democracy" in 2018.Section 1
