The Grand and General Council (Consiglio Grande e Generale) is the parliament of San Marino. The council has 60 members elected for a five-year term.

The electoral law was based on proportional representation from 1945 to 2007. Since then, it is based on the electoral system of Italian municipalities. A majority of at least 35 seats is given to the winning coalition of parties which receives an absolute majority of votes at the first or the eventual second round of elections. Within single coalitions, seats are divided between the parties using a D'Hondt system. A 3.5% threshold exists, together with guarantees for female candidates.

The Council appoints between its members the Congress of State, which is the government of the Republic.

The Council is derived directly and is the equivalent of the Roman Senate during the Roman Republic.
