Government

Pohenicia is a democratic country, in which the participation of the people is fundamental and the rule of law is very important and especially implacable with those who dare to surpass it. The Government of the Republic is, as in other democratic regimes, divided into three branches or powers: The Executive Branch, exercised by the President of the Council (Presidente del Consejo) and the Council of Ministers (Consejo de Ministros), who are the head of state; The Legislative Power, exercised by the Parliament (El Parlamento) (Upper House), the Senate (El Senado) (Lower House) and the people themselves through the Popular Councils (Concilios Populares). Finally The Judicial Branch, perhaps the most important and influential branch, exercised by the General Tribunals (Tribunales Generales), The Ombudsman (El Defensor del Pueblo),, The Supreme Court (El Tribunal Superior de Justicia) and the Council of the Law (El Consejo de la Ley). In order to carry out any change in the constitution it is mandatory to approve it through Constitutional Referendum (Referendum Constitucional). To make any change in a law can be requested to hold a Popular Referendum (Referendum Popular), at the three levels of administration: national, provincial and municipal. Through referendums, citizens can challenge any law voted by The Pohenians Court (Las Cortes Pohenicias) and, through initiatives, introduce amendments to the Constitution.

Legislative Branch

The Senate

The Senate is composed of 400 senators who are elected every four years. The functions of the Senate are mainly the territorial representation, reason why its members are distributed by provinces of proportional form to the population. The Senate promotes laws applicable to the national territory or only to one or several determined provinces. It also oversees Parliament while being overseen by Parliament. Both have veto power over the other, so it can lead to cyclical situations in which a law is passed by the Senate and rejected by Parliament (or vice versa) repeatedly. These cases are resolved by the Council of Ministers, ruling in favor of one or the other.

The Parliament

The Parliament is composed of 350 parliamentarians chosen by direct suffrage, representing the whole population. They draw up legislation at the national level and regulate the Senate, with the same powers as this one.

The Councils

The Councils are meetings of voluntary people who want to participate more directly in politics. They make proposals for laws that are forwarded to Parliament and contain requests from Adecum Indicio Populo to the Council of Law. The latter has the obligation to review the proposal and turn it into a bill, which will be voted on in Parliament later. Councils usually consist of between 100 and 1000 people.

Executive Branch

The Council of Ministers

Exercises the Executive Branch and is composed of 24 ministers and a President of the Council. The Council of Ministers has legislative initiative, makes decrees (less important than laws and provisional, does not require the approval of The Pohenicians Court, but must be reconsidered by both chambers, if it wants to become law, before a set time, usually 60 natural days) and elaborates the General State Budget. The ministers are elected by semi-direct suffrage. The winner of the elections (if it is by absolute majority) presents a list with several candidates for a Ministry, citizens choose the minister from among the possibilities. If the winner is not an absolute majority, several political parties may present their own list of ministers. It may be the case that the winning list and the majority political party do not agree.

Judicial Branch

The General Courts

Divided into five branches depending on their competences: Civil, Criminal, Administrative, Social, Mercantile and Military Courts.

Supreme Court

It is made up of 10 members and a President of the Court, who are elected by The Pohenicians Court and the Council of Ministers (4 Senate magistrates, 4 Parliament and 2 Council of Ministers). This court knows and decides cases related to the members of the Government and the judicial system itself (parliamentarians, senators, ministers, judges, etc.), reviews petitions for annulment (annulment of a court order that is incorrect) and decides cases of illegalization of political parties. Its competence extends throughout the territory.

The Ombudsman

He is a special magistrate whose main functions are the protection and conservation of the moral or physical integrity of the population in front of the Public Administration or Private companies.

The Council of the Law

It is the most important court, superior to all the others. It is composed of 150 magistrates elected by universal and direct suffrage every 10 years. The functions of this court are:

  • Deciding on appeals of unconstitutionality about decrees and laws, these resources can be presented by the Council of Ministers, the Ombudsman, 50 Deputies of the Parliament, 50 Senators, the Provincial Governments and any individual or legal entity presenting 200,000 guarantees (signatures) .
  • Decide on amparo remedies in the face of human rights violations. The amparo remedies may be filed by any natural or legal person invoking a legitimate interest, or Ombudsman.
  • Decide on the constitutional conflicts between the State and the Provinces or between them.
  • Decide on the conflicts between the organs of the State.
  • Decide on the previous declaration on the constitutionality of the international treaties.
  • Issue the Principle of Adecum Indicio Populo (Decree of the Right of the People).
