  Chamber of Deputies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Historically, the "Chamber of Deputies" (fr:Chambre des députés) was the lower house of parliament in the French Third Republic; the name is still informally used for the Assemblée nationale under the current Fifth Republic.
Members of these parliamentary chambers are generally referred to as "deputies", with the sense of "congressperson", "member of parliament".
The term "deputy" may be extended to refer to any member of a parliamentary body; this usage is particularly common among those parliaments or legislative chambers in French- and Spanish-speaking countries that style themselves National Assemblies.

 Election Resources on the Internet: Elections to the Italian Parliament
From 1948 to 1992, members of the Chamber of Deputies were elected by proportional representation (PR) in multi-member electoral districts, except in Valle d'Aosta, represented in the Chamber by one member elected by simple majority.
Chamber seats awarded to a coalition are in turn proportionally allocated among constituent parties that have obtained at least two percent of the vote; however, this requirement is waived for the coalition party with the largest number of votes among those polling fewer than two percent.
Chamber seats in Italy proper are subsequently distributed among twenty-six multi-member districts - the same districts used under the previous electoral system - following a set of complex procedures designed to insure that seats are filled in all districts without changing the nationwide distribution of seats or the apportionment of seats among districts.

 Chamber of Deputies in Brazil
Each State, and also the Federal District, elect a number of Deputies in proportion to the respective population; there is, however, a minimum of eight and a maximum of seventy Deputies per State.
The idea, grosso modo, is that the Chamber represents the population (and therefore the number of Deputies is proportional to the population), whereas the Senate represents the Federation (hence, each State has the same vocality, all with three Senators).
Every law must be approved both by the Chamber and the Senate (and eventually promulgated - or vetoed - by the President of the Republic); if one of the Houses changes anything in the draft of law being appreciated, the draft returns to the other House for a new appreciation.
