WHAT DOES PRIVATE MEMBER'S BILL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Private member's bill

A private member's bill in a parliamentary system of government is a bill introduced into a legislature by a legislator who is not acting on behalf of the executive branch. The designation "private member's bill" is used in most Westminster System jurisdictions, in which a "private member" is any member of parliament who is not a member of the cabinet. Other labels may be used for the concept in other parliamentary systems. In presidential systems with a separation of the executive from the legislature, the concept does not arise since the executive cannot initiate legislation, and bills are introduced by individual legislators. In the Westminster System, most bills are "government bills" introduced by the executive, with private member's bills the exception; however, some time is set aside in the schedule for reading such bills. They may be introduced by non-ministerial MPs from government-supporting parties, by members of opposition parties, or by independents or crossbenchers. The United Kingdom parliament has a long history of enacting private member's bills.
