Objectives of the research: evaluating and assessing the degree of theoretical research of the issue of parliamentary responsibility in the context of public power responsibility and outlining its main directions of research; analyzing the theory of public power responsibility in order to elucidate the forms of liability of the state and its authorities; analysis of the representation theory in order to outline the constitutional status of the Parliament and the representative essence of the parliamentary mandate, a theory that represents a determinant of the essence of the parliamentary institution and of the limits of parliamentary responsibility; identifying and analyzing the forms of liability that Parliament is liable to as a collective subject of law; identifying and analyzing the forms of liability that parliamentarians are liable to, including in the light of parliamentary immunity and inviolability.

The scientific novelty and originality of the paper is reflected in the proposal of a distinct vision on the concept / conception of parliamentary responsibility (approached in doctrine in different acceptances), as well as on the forms of responsibility which Parliament and its members are liable to.
