I have heard the distinction between a "congress" and a
"parliament," where the executive is responsible to (and
composed of members of) the latter but not the former.
I don't know a term for a legislature/assembly/chamber that
indicates how its members are elected.

If you say "parliaments are elected by PR," then suddenly
Britain doesn't have a parliament.
