In Bosnia and Herzegovina a fourth parliament also exists: the Brčko District Assembly (Skupština Brčko distrikta) is a unicameral legislative body of some 80,000 citizens located around the town of Brčko, and at the same time a municipal council.
Although the RS parliament is unicameral, some control functions of an upper house are vested in the Council of Peoples, which exercises its power to protect the vital national interests of the constituent peoples, as outlined in the Republika Srpska constitution. The Council does not participate in the law-making process, but controls laws, regulations, and legal acts previously adopted in the National Assembly for the purpose of defining whether an adopted law, regulation or other legal act violates any vital national interest of the constituent peoples.
