The Kantàns House (Byri: ߞߊߣߕߋ߳ߣߊߌߦߊ ߛߍߌߛߊߌߞߊ Kantonaiya Seisaika) is the lower house of the Kalisaanyan Parliament. Like the Nobles House (the upper chamber), it meets in the Àchkambada Rayia Kohu Byeria in Sadiemarkt.

The House is an elected body consisting of 573 members known as Parliamentary Representatives (PRs). Representatives are elected via a Mixed Member Majoritarian system, with Party list representatives from each Prefecture and local representatives from each Kantàn and city with a population over 50,000. Representatives are elected every two years, with all members replaced simultaneously.


The oldest precursor to the modern Calliesanyan Parliament, the Imperial Advisory Board, did not have a popularly elected membership. During the civil unrest of the 1820s, revolutionary speakers demanded that Emperor Kossai II introduce an elected body of legislators to the government. While Kossai II chose to abdicate the throne instead of give into the demands of the revolutionaries, his son, Emperor Ashaigo III, chose to create the legislature that the people demanded. The early "People's Parliament" as it was known, was made up of four elected officials from each province. This arrangement lasted only six years before the Imperial Advisory Board voted to reform the entire legislative branch. Beginning in 1840, the new legislature took a form similar to today's Parliament: the lower house was elected by the people, with one representative from each Canton in the country; the upper house consisted of the peerage and landed nobility, as a streamlined form of the old Imperial Advisory Board.

In 1891, the Kantàns House was further reorganized, adding representatives for all Imperially Acknowledged Cities and making the positions of Magistrate and Princess-Elect of the Empire of Kalisaanyo representatives in the House.

With the rise of Youta Melang and the Byri Statist Party in 1911, the Àchkamba lost much of its legislative power, and remained largely irrelevant until the death of Empress Lissa in 1957 and the subsequent return to democracy under Empress Ishanna V.

With the adoption of the Third Constitution in 1957, the Kantàns house became a Mixed Member Majoritarian body, with party list representatives added to each prefecture for every two local representatives elected in that jurisdiction.
