Subtypes[ edit ] There are two separate subtypes of semi-presidentialism: Under the premier-presidential system, the Prime Minister and Cabinet are exclusively accountable to Parliament. The President chooses the Prime Minister and Cabinet, but only the Parliament may remove them from office with a vote of no confidence.
The President does not have the right to dismiss the Prime Minister or the Cabinet. However, in some cases, the President can circumvent this limitation by exercising the discretionary power of dissolving the Parliament, which forces the Prime Minister and Cabinet to step down.
The President chooses the Prime Minister and the Cabinet but must have the support of the Parliament majority for his choice. In order to remove a Prime Minister or the whole Cabinet from power, the President can dismiss them or the Parliament, can remove them by a vote of no confidence.

It is up to the President to decide how much "autonomy" is left to "their" Prime Minister to act on their own. Cohabitation government Semi-presidential systems may sometimes experience periods in which the president and the prime minister are from differing political parties.
This is called " cohabitation ", a term which originated in France when the situation first arose in the s. Cohabitation can create an effective system of checks and balances or a period of bitter and tense stonewalling, depending on the attitudes of the two leadersthe ideologies of their parties, or the demands of their constituencies.
For example, inFrance elected both a Socialist president and legislature, which yielded a Socialist premier. When, in the legislative electionthe French people elected a right-of-centre assembly, Socialist President Mitterrand was forced into cohabitation with rightist premier Jacques Chirac.
This has significantly lowered the chances of cohabitation occurring, as parliamentary and presidential elections may now be conducted within a shorter span of each other.
Advantages and disadvantages[ edit ] The incorporation of elements from both presidential and parliamentary republics brings some advantageous elements along with them but, however, it also faces disadvantages related to the confusion from mixed authority patterns.
Disadvantages Confusion about accountability — parliamentary systems give voters a relatively clear sense of who is responsible for policy successes and failures; presidential systems make this more difficult, particularly when there is divided government.
Semi-presidential systems add another layer of complexity for voters; Confusion and inefficiency in legislative process — the capacity of votes of confidence makes the Prime Minister responsible to the parliament.
Republics with a semi-presidential system of government[ edit ] Main article: In such systems, the president has genuine executive authority, unlike in a parliamentary republic, but the role of a head of government may be exercised by the prime minister. Italics indicate states with limited recognition.
President-parliamentary systems[ edit ] The president chooses the prime minister without the confidence vote from the parliament.
