Latin American Parliament

The Latin American Parliament (Parlatino), is a regional, permanent and unicameral organism, integrated from the national Parliaments of Latin America, elected democratically by means of universal suffrage in countries that ratified the corresponding Treaty of Institutionalization on November 16 1987 in Lima, Peru, and those Parliaments whose States adhered to the treaty at a later time, in accordance with the procedures indicated in the statute. The admission of other members is the exclusive prerogative of the Assembly. Its headquarters, located in Sao Paulo, were designed by Oscar Niemeyer.
