Abstract

Although the National Assembly is the constitutional lawmaker, legislative power is also centred on the president, who has the power to reject bills, direct policy and change the length of term of any Assembly. The president is also responsible for the appointment of the prime minister and all ministerial government roles, upon recommendation of the prime minister. Therefore, despite being the head of government, the prime ministership remains largely a powerless, ceremonial role. The President is elected by plurality vote to serve a seven-year term.
