|Result||Popular faction victory|
Jardinia's constitution defines the country as a "people's democracy", which is "guided by the ideas of Jardinian Communism". Technically, the country follows a parliamentary system, in which the President is elected by the Parliament, which is elected in a general election every four years.
The national legislature is the Cortes de las Islas (Islands' Courts), which is formed by two houses: the Chamber of Legislators for political parties and the Social Assembly for trade unions. The Cortes also elect the President.
Each of the two chambers of the Parliament has 100 members elected by six constituencies (matching the comarcas) by proportional representation.
The main party is the Workers' Party (called Comunist Party of Jardinia until 1987). It was the only party allowed to participate in elections until the constitutional reform of 1995. Through that constitutional reform, the country abandoned the stricter communism that had been Jardinia's ideology since the end of the Civil War, and adopted the Jardinian Communism.
