States with parliamentary democracy parliamentary democracy parliamentary democracy is a new form of government that operates under a parliamentary system. In opposition to the Republic presidential and Semi-presidential system, the head of state usually has no real executive powers as an executive President, since most of these powers have been granted to the head of government, usually called prime minister. However, the head of state and head of government must form a single office in a parliamentary republic (like South Africa or Botswana), but the president still elect the same way that the prime minister in the Westminster system type states. On some occasions the President has to take legal executive to carry out everyday of the institutions (as in Finland or Ireland) but do not use these powers. Some parliamentary republics could therefore be seen as semi-presidential republic with a system, but operate in a parliamentary form.
