Rebello de Carvalho describes the parliamentary system of Great Britain and sets out the necessary qualifications to become an elector, comparing it with the Portuguese parliamentary system.   The Reform Act of 1832 in Britain extended the franchise, increasing the size of the electorate, and gave more power to the people, to usher in a new era of liberalism.   The author was a staunch liberal who, when D. Miguel abolished the Constitutional Charter, fled to England in 1828 for political reasons and who later became a deputy of the Portuguese Cortes.   Pp. 63-72 contain examples of documents required for electoral registration, etc.
