The General Junta (Basque: Orokor Junta; Catalan: Junt General; Occitan: Amassa General) is the legislative parliament of the Aranese Community and the supreme body of State power. Its members (currently numbering 951) are elected from single-member electoral districts for a term of five years. The current Prime Minister elected by the Junta is Rubèn Sampietr. The two houses must convene at least four times a year.

By the Republican-inspired Constitution of 1982, the two houses of the Junta possess the same powers: this particular form of parliamentary democracy (so-called perfect bicameralism) has been coded in the current form since the establishment of the First Aranese Republic, and resurged after the dismissal of the fascist dictatorship of the 1950s and 1960s following the Rose Revolution.

Because the President of the Senate is acting Head of State in the absence of the President of the Government, the President of the Senate and the Vice-Presidents of the Senate have a higher position than their respective counterparts of the Chamber of Deputies in the Aranese order of precedence. On the other hand, no distinction is made between deputies and senators.
