Constitutional monarchy combines some of the advantages of both representative government and that of absolute monarchy. The monarch him or herself provides a personal focus of national identity. This is especially important in cases where the national identity is trumped by ethnic, sectarian or tribal affiliation. Under these conditions elected officials who are not responsible to a single national figure can be expected to act in the best interests of their particular faction rather than in the interest in the nation as a whole. The constitutional advantages lie in the need of a monarch to codify traditional governance, moving governance from the realm of custom into the realm of law. These advantages may be non existent in a society without a strong sense of civil society or a tradition of political stability.
