Hello to you all
 
In all the time I have been on this forum I never saw a discussion about Roman assemblies (both republical and Imperial) and since the classical age has been in a dry spell why not discuss them.
 
Now I know that Rome had several assemblies that are subject to elections and such. The problem is I never found a sources that explained in plain and simple terms their nature.
 
How much power did those assemblies have? I mean in all Roman history the unelected senate seems to have all the power while the only power those assemlies had was electing magistrates and rubber stamp whatever laws that come from the senate.
 
Plus how much participation did the provinces have in the legistlative process and the elections of those assemblies. For all I know only Romans (i.e. citizens of the city) had the right to sit in those assemblies and elect counsils and such.

It's not that no one is interested Al Jassas, it is that the subject is as complex and multi-layered through different epochs as to goggle generalization. You do know that old war-horse of historiography from 1909 is on-line:
 
George Willis Botsford. The Roman Assemblies from their Origin to the End of the Republic. New York: Macmillan, 1909.
