The Parliament of the Balearic Islands (Catalan: Parlament de les Illes Balears) is the unicameral autonomous parliament of the Balearic Islands, one of the autonomous communities of Spain. The Parliament, composed of 59 elected seats, is located in the city of Palma, on the island of Majorca.

In the 2015 Balearic parliamentary election the People's Party (PP) lost its majority, falling to 20 seats in the legislature.[1] Following this, a PSOE and Més government was installed with the support of Podem.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Balearic Islands (Catalan: Assemblea de Parlamentaris de les Illes Balears) was an unofficial provisional body serving as pre-autonomic representation. It was composed by the 11 elected deputies and senators in the 1977 general election, i.e. 4 UCD deputies, 2 PSOE deputies, 3 UCD senators, 1 PSOE senator and 1 AP senator. It was created on 30 July 1977 and dissolved on 24 July 1978, when it was substituted by the Inter-island General Council.[2]
