Party Leaders and House Officers

Within a parliamentary caucus, some members are appointed as House officers to organize the work of their party in the House and its committees. The party leader acts as the official representative of the party and provides leadership in Parliament. A party also has a House Leader who is responsible, in conjunction with the other House Leaders, for coordinating the day-to-day business of the House. The whip of a party is a member charged with keeping other members of the same party informed concerning House business and ensuring their attendance in the House or in committee. Members also elect a caucus chair from among their parliamentary caucus to preside over their meetings.
