The Lukiiko is the Parliament of the Kingdom of Buganda. It was, according to tradition, established by Kato Kintu, the first Kabaka (king) after defeating the rival prince Bbemba, when he called a general meeting of influential people at Magongo[disambiguation needed], and is today convened at the Bulange. The membership consists of directly-elected members from Buganda counties, Buganda county chiefs, members appointed by the Kabaka, and Buganda cabinet ministers. The current speaker is Nelson Kawalya, and the deputy speaker is Ahmed Lwasa.

The Lukiiko is charged with legislating by-laws of the kingdom, but is not allowed by the state government to legislate political matters.
