From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Parliamentary republics with parliamentarily-dependent heads-of-state are shown in Green.

Some parliamentary republics possess heads of state (concurrently serving as heads of government) who are indirectly elected to office for various terms by the parliamentary majority and are dependent upon the confidence of the parliamentary majority in order to stay in office for the duration of a term. This form of executive-branch arrangement is distinct from most other parliamentary and semi-presidential republics which separate the head of state (usually designated as the "president") from the head of government (usually designated as "prime minister", "premier" or "chancellor") and subject the latter to the confidence of parliament and a flexible tenure in office while the head of state lacks either dependency, and investing either office with the majority of executive power.
