The Senate consisted of seven elected members and ten appointed members. The elected members were elected in two districts using a two-round system. The appointed members represented five groups; the clergy, the nobility, graduates, commerce and the Trade Union Council, with each group having two members each. During its existence, elections for the Senate took place in 1921, 1927 and 1932.
