It depends on what country you're talking about. In "democratic" countries like Canada, the USA, and most European countries, the citizens choose (elect) representatives every few years to make their laws. These elected representatives are usually called "parliamentarians", "representatives", "congressmen" or "senators."

Towns and cities can also make their own laws that apply only within their boundaries. These laws are usually called "ordinances" or "by-laws" and are usually made by elected members of the town or city council.

In some countries, where there is no democracy and people don't get to vote in elections, laws are made by "monarchs" (kings or queens) or "dictators", who basically make whatever rules they like and kill or imprison anyone who doesn't like the laws they've made.
