This chapter examines National Congresses and the nature of representation in Andean legislatures. It investigates the role of the legislatures in provoking institutional overhauls and suggests that the relationships between parties and among members of the same partisan delegation tend to take extreme forms in Andean legislatures. This chapter considers reforms intended to enhance democratic representation and suggests that such reforms have not countered a deepening popular sense that the mechanisms of democratic representation are not functioning adequately.

Keywords:   National Congresses, representation, Andean legislatures, institutional overhauls, partisan delegation, democratic representation
