Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Semi-Presidentialism is the term used to describe the constitutional arrangement where there is a directly elected president and a prime-minister who is responsible to parliament. This book examines the politics of semi-presidentialism and explores why seemingly similar political systems operate in such different ways. It studies the constitutional powers of political leaders and the role of political parties.
