The San Francisco Provincial Assembly is the provincial unicameral assembly of the province of San Francisco of the Kingdom of Sierra. The assembly only consists of one body, that being the provincial assembly, and is based within the provincial capital and largest city of San Francisco City and convenes in the city hall building as the daily session room. Elections are held once every five years on August 10th since 1905 and the last election was in 2015.
Since the 1960s, the Democratic-Republicans and left-wing political parties such as the Social Democrats and the Greens have dominated provincial politics due to the strong presence of counter-culture and anti-establishment sentiments that permeates in the province even into the modern era. Since 2011, the assembly has been dominated by the Progressive Coalition, an electoral alliance made up of the Democratic-Republican, Social Democratic Committee, and Green Party. The coalition in general holds a supermajority in the assembly holding 117 seats with the remaining 23 being held by the Royalist Party, Christian Democratic Association, and Libertarian Party who are all part of the Conservative Alliance since 2015.
