8. And in some places, there is no such thing as a 'lame-duck' session

of a legislative body, such as Parliament.

In most parliamentary systems, the parliament is dissolved until the election, and the newly elected members take office right away. Generally, the Prime Minister of Great Britain takes office the day after an election.

Likewise, in my hometown, newly elected city commissioners are sworn in the meeting after their election.
