  1. Parliamentary republic

    A parliamentary republic is a republic that operates under a parliamentary system of government where the executive branch (the government) derives its legitimacy from and is accountable to the legislature (the parliament). There are a number of variations of parliamentary republics. Most have a clear differentiation between the head of government and the head of state, with the head of government holding real power, much like constitutional monarchies (however some head of states, regardless whether the country's system is a parliamentary republic or a constitutional monarchy, are given 'reserve powers' to use at his/her discretion in order to act as a non-partisan 'referee' of the political process and ensure the nation's constitution is upheld). Some have combined the roles of head of state and head of government, much like presidential systems, but with a dependency upon parliamentary power. For the first case mentioned above, the form of executive-branch arrangement is distinct from most other government and semi-presidential republics that separate the head of state (usually designated as the "president") from the head of government (usually designated as "prime minister", "premier" or "chancellor") and subject the latter to the confidence of parliament and a lenient tenure in office while the head of state lacks dependency and investing either office with the majority of executive power.


  1. parliamentary republic

    A parliamentary republic is a form of government in which a president or a ceremonial head of state acts as the head of state, while the actual governance is conducted by the parliament and its elected representatives. In this system, the parliament has the power to make laws, control the budget, and appoint or dismiss the government. The president, typically elected by the parliament or by the people, represents the state and performs ceremonial duties, but has limited powers compared to the prime minister or the head of government who is responsible for daily administration and policy-making.
