The Duma (Soravian: Дума; Duma), officially the Duma of the Soravian Republic (Soravian: Дума Зоравіижскоиі Республіки; Duma Zoraviysʹkoyi Respubliky) is the lower house of the State Assembly of the Soravian Republic, the bicameral legislature of the Soravian Republic. The Duma holds most domestic legislative power within Soravia, including the power to draft and enact laws, delagate provinces and territories, impeach presidents and declare war, among several other significant actions. It contains 500 seats, five times more than its upper house counterpart, the Voynaskul. Sava Tokar paved the way for the establishment of the Duma and a bicameral legislature during his interim presidency, and at the election of Vasil Bodnar in 1983, succeeded its predecessor the State Convention in full legal capacity.
Elections for the Duma are scheduled every five years. The Duma Building is located on Novi Laksuv Street in western Samistopol. The largest party in the Duma is the Patriots' Front by a significant margin, with 413 of the 500 seats, 82.6% of the available seats.
