Presidential Democracy

Forms Of Government

How leaders are chosen

Voters in countries with this type of government vote for a president of the executive branch. They also elect all law makers. Both president and legistlaors have fixed terms in office.


Some pros to this type of government is that since the president is elected by the people they may be more responsive to the people than their party. They will most likely also enjoy more legitimacy and public support. People have more of a say in this government other than an anarchy or dictatorship. They also have the freedom to choose their own jobs and make their own business.


Cons of this government is it is almost to remove presidents from power before their term ends no matter how unpopular they may be. When presidents are not from the political party that controls the legistlaors it may result in a gridlock.
