single value[edit]

many countries have multiple legislative bodies, so the single value constraint should be removed. --Akkakk 00:23, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps, perhaps not. For example the United States Congress (Q11268) is bicameral legislature (Q189445) with a United States House of Representatives (Q11701) and a United States Senate (Q66096). Unless there are a significant number of fully separated legislative bodies the single value constraint should remain. Allen4names (talk) 00:28, 9 July 2013 (UTC)
  • I agree with User:Allen4names. For bicameral legislatures this property should link to "Foobar Legislature" or "Foobar General Assembly" or whathaveyou, which in turn should have the property "has part => Senate" and "has part => House". I know that there are a couple odd cases where there are two overlapping legislatures, but we can look at those exceptions one-by-one. --Arctic.gnome (talk) 05:32, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
  • In almost all cases there will be a collective term for all bodies in the legislature. The more likely situation where there would be more than one value is when the government changes. For example "Foobar military advisory counsel (1950-1980)" and "People's Parliament of Foobar (1980-present)". --Arctic.gnome (talk) 00:17, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
