The Volkskammer (People's Chamber) is the unicameral legislature of the Cerdani Democratic Republic (colloquially known as East Cerdani) established in 1950.

The Volkskammer has 500 members who are directly elected through a mixed system of preferential voting for National Front and independent candidates in the 375 seats available to them. A single transferable vote system is used for the 125 seats that are specifically set aside for Communist Party candidates. All Volkskammer members serve five-year terms.
