The Parliament of United Earth is the legislative body of United Earth, one of the founding Federation member states. The U.E. Parliament is headed by Earth's head of government, the Prime Minister. (TNG short story: "Eleven Hours Out", ENT novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing, TOS novel: A Less Perfect Union)
In 2155, many United Earth citizens were critical of their government's conduct of the Earth-Romulan War, blaming the United Earth Parliament amongst other governmental agencies. (ENT novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)
In 2156, the Parliament voted to put the force of law behind Prime Minister Nathan Samuels's executive order, which called for United Earth Starfleet forces to turn the Sol system into a "fortress". (ENT novel: To Brave the Storm)
The Parliament's existence is implied, but not explicitly established, in "Eleven Hours Out." It is confirmed in Beneath the Raptor's Wing and A Less Perfect Union. It may or may not be related to the United Earth Council, established in Kobayashi Maru.
