Abstract

In the middle of the twentieth century, the bicameralism was a method of parliamentary organisation in England and France, but the African countries' experience is differently founded. The reasons for setting up the first legislative Chambers in these countries are often identical and uncontested, for such institutions symbolise the emergence of representative democracy. The same is not true of second Chambers, the heterogeneity of which often gives rise to considerable criticism. Countries in transition may see bicameralism as an instrument allowing short term stability to be afforded, and democracy to be strengthened in the long term.
