The first decade of the Czech democratic Parliament has seen the development of a newly conceptualised, bicameral Parliament in a new State. We identify general tendencies toward stabilisation, similar to Western European parliamentary practices. Another trend is the gradual change from organising the Parliament according to the majority principle to that of consensus. There is also a long-term clash over the powers of the Senate and a gradual erosion of the dominant role of the Chamber of Deputies.
