Power is held chiefly by the Prime Minister and other elected members of the Joongchuwon , while sovereignty is vested in the people. Suhyon's legislative organ is the Joongchuwon, a bicameral parliament. The Joongchuwon consists of a House of Representatives, elected by popular vote every four years or when dissolved, and a Senate, whose popularly elected members serve six-year terms. The Joongchuwon is dominated by the Imperial Assistance Association. The Prime Minister is the head of government and is appointed by the Emperor after being designated by the Joongchuwon from among its members. The Prime Minister is the head of the Cabinet, and he appoints and dismisses the Ministers of State. Although the Prime Minister is formally appointed by the Emperor, the Constitution of the Empire of Suhyon explicitly requires the Emperor to appoint whoever is designated by the Joongchuwon.
