Approval by both the House of Representatives and the House of Representatives is required for all bills, including budget bills, to be passed, such as those granted to the House of Representatives in the United Kingdom and Japan.The superiority of the chamberThere is no.

House of RepresentativesThe chairpersons of each committee of both houses have strong power to decide the order of bill deliberation and nominate speakers at their own discretion.On the other hand, in the Senate plenary session, the discretion of the presiding officer is small, and the majority party's in-house general affairs plays a central role in managing the proceedings with the agreement of all members as much as possible.
