Summary/Abstract: The author describes the rights and competences of the Ordinary and Grand National Assemblies, as defined by the Tarnovo Constitution from 1879. The author focuses on the relationship between Ordinary National Assembly and the prince institution; the rights and obligations of the Head of State for the establishment and dismissal of governments. Here are also described the possible variants in case of vote of non-confidence in the government by the parliament and the options for the Head of State. The author discusses the political practice in Bulgaria, electoral laws, voting rights for citizens, and the imposed restrictions. The place and role of the two types of Assembly in the Bulgarian political life are of high importance, as well is their ability to assert their independence in relation to the other institutions and the strong personalities of the day.
