The President of the Republic ([[Mallyorian]]: ''Predsjednik/ica Republike'') is the head of state; he or she is directly elected and serves a five-year term. The president is the commander in chief of the armed forces, has the procedural duty of appointing the prime minister with the consent of the Sabornik (Parliament) through a majority vote (majority of all MPs), and has some influence on foreign policy. The most recent presidential election was held on 11 June 2014 and was won by [[Ivan Kljaković]]. The constitution limits holders of the presidential office to a maximum of two terms and prevents the president from being a member of any political party. Consequently, the president-elect withdraws from party membership before inauguration.

Latest revision as of 00:22, 8 March 2020

The politics of Mallyore are defined by a parliamentary, representative democratic republic framework, where the Prime Minister of Mallyore is the head of government in a multi-party system. Executive power is exercised by the Government and the President of Mallyore. Legislative power is vested in the Mallyorian Parliament (Mallyorian: Sabornik). The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature.

Constitution

Mallyore is a unitary democratic parliamentary republic. Following the collapse of the ruling authoritarian socialistic regime of Želimir Boravica, Mallyore adopted a new constitution in 1974 – which replaced the 1943 constitution adopted by the Socialist Republic of Mallyore. While the 1974 constitution remains in force, it has been amended five times since its adoption — last time in 2009. Under its 1943 constitution, Mallyore operated a semi-presidential system (only de facto) until 1974 when it switched to a parliamentary system. Government powers in Mallyore are divided into legislative, executive and judiciary powers. The legal system of Mallyore is civil law and, along with the institutional framework, is strongly influenced by the legal heritage of Escadia-Mallyore Union.

Executive

President

The President of the Republic (Mallyorian: Predsjednik/ica Republike) is the head of state; he or she is directly elected and serves a five-year term. The president is the commander in chief of the armed forces, has the procedural duty of appointing the prime minister with the consent of the Sabornik (Parliament) through a majority vote (majority of all MPs), and has some influence on foreign policy. The most recent presidential election was held on 11 June 2018 and was won by Ivan Kljaković. The constitution limits holders of the presidential office to a maximum of two terms and prevents the president from being a member of any political party. Consequently, the president-elect withdraws from party membership before inauguration.

Government

Ministery of Public Administration in Nikkeltown

The government (Mallyorian: Vlada), the main executive power of Mallyore, is headed by the prime minister who has two deputies, who also serve as government ministers. There are 12 other ministers who are appointed by the prime minister with the consent of the Sabor (majority of all MPs); these are in charge of particular sectors of activity. As of 6 March 2020, the Deputy Prime Ministers are Ivana Tolušček and Jelena Brzović. Government ministers are from the Mallyorian Democratic Party (MDS), the Green Option (ZO) and the Focus (F). The executive branch is responsible for proposing legislation and a budget, executing the laws, and guiding the country's foreign and domestic policies. The government's official residence is at Stjepan Šiško Square (OGFmapicon.png map). The current prime minister is Zvonimir Korošić.
