ABSTRACT
Since 1977, year of the first democratic election after Franco’s dictatorship, almost forty years of an intense political life have elapsed. Doubtlessly, Parliament has played a leading role in the transformations occurred: for the first time in Spanish history, a social and democratic State governed by the rule of law has been consolidated. The development of these aspects has involved an extraordinary legislative task, whose main aspects are summarised in this paper. The author also analyses the performance of the scrutinizing function, revealing the obstacles found by the Cortes to control the Government’s activity. Otherwise, synthesis of the electoral processes during this democratic period and the evolution of the parties present in the Houses are provided. As a final point, some reform proposals are included for improving the functioning of Parliament within the political system, as well as a final consideration about the feelings that the parliamentary institution have produced among the citizens.
