The State Parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia (German: Landtag Nordrhein-Westfalen) is the legislative body for the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It convenes in the capital city of Düsseldorf. As one of the sixteen state parliaments in Germany, it holds responsibility for enacting laws, overseeing the state government, and representing the interests of the citizens of North Rhine-Westphalia.
