De facto is latin for in fact and in political terms indicates a government that may have ceased power unlawfully. They may not be constitutionally in power, but are in reality. De jure is the opposite.
De facto is a government supported by the people of the state and not by a constitution. De jure on the other hand is a government supported by a present constitution. For example: Corry Aquino's government.
A de jure government is officially recognized by the constitution and other (neighboring) states, and sometimes even supranational and inter-governmental institutions. De facto governments are not recognized. De facto governments are caused by for example a revolution within (i.e. revolutions caused by the people of the State).
jure power = legislation ;facto power=justice
The Latin phrase 'de facto' means 'in or according to fact'. The phrase 'de jure' means 'in or according to law'. In terms of government, a 'de jure' government describes a government that's recognized by and in accord with legal standards and systems. A 'de facto' government describes the government that actually is operating and being respected as the ruling body. Ideally, the two phrases describe the same government in the same area. For example, the Taliban became the 'de facto' and the 'de jure' government in much of Afghanistan for the time period 1996-2001. Prior to and since those years, the Taliban has been the 'de facto' but not the 'de jure' government in areas where its supporters, representatives and organizers hold power.
De facto means in fact, and de jure means in law. De Jure slavery would refer to legalised slavery. De facto slavery would not be in a legal sense, but would be the situation nonetheless.
De jure means 'in law' and de facto means 'in fact.' De jure discrimination means that a law, by the way its read, is discriminatory; de facto means that it looks fine, but it will probably lead to discriminatory practice.
De jure refers to an expression which means according to the law. This is in contrast to de facto which means concerning fact.
De Jure Segregation is separated by LAW De Facto Segregation is separated by 'Fact' not by law
If something is de facto it means it is a reality, a fact of life, even if not approved in law (de jure).eg: Kosovo exists as a de facto country because, de jure, it is still part of Serbia.eg de jure one cannot park one's car on the pavement but de facto everyone does.
De Jure means as by law and De Facto means as in fact, as there are situations when the legal position does not correspond to the actual situation. The best example is where there is a revolution or a coup d etat in a country. To overthrow a government by force is illegal. Therefore the new regime is de jure invalid but is still the de facto government. Other governments have to decide whether to recognise the new government and, when they do, the new government becomes de jure. A typical example would be the Military Coup in Portugal in 1974. It is obviously against the constitution of any country for the armed forces to seize power but in this case it was the only way to free the country from oppression and hence all governments recognised the new state. Thus the de facto government by virtue of being recognised became de jure...
"De jure" means "concerning law" while "de facto" means "concerning fact". A state may be de jure sovereign without being de facto sovereign, because a greater nation maintains economic or political hegemony over them, as Syria did with Lebanon. Or vice versa: de facto sovereign without being de jure sovereign, like the tribal areas of Pakistan.
De jure segregation is when the separation of groups happens by act of law. De facto segregation is separation that is done because of tradition or out of practice.
Custody may be characterized as 'de facto' or as 'de jure'. A 'de facto' custody refers to the custodial arrangement that 'in fact' is in effect. This arrangement may or may not tally with a 'de jure' custody. A 'de jure' custody refers to the custodial arrangement that is approved according to the particular standards and systems of law.
De jure means decided by law, and de facto is decided by 'fact' or, 'real life'. When you decide not to wear a jacket when it rains, no policeman will arrest you and have you tried and a judge sentence to 'be cold'; that is a 'de facto' result of your decision.
De facto in 1901, de jure in 1953.
de facto means in practice, in effect and is often contrasted with de jure - by law. So defacto discrimination means discrimination in practice (but not in law).
De jure indicates that according to law women have equalityDe facto means that as a matter of fact, they don't have equality in many areas
De Facto segregation and De Jure segregation
ang pamahalaang de facto ay isang pamahalaan kung saan ang mga mamamayan ang may kapangyarihan kaysa sa pamahalaan. Ang de jure naman ay ang pamahalaan ang masusunod kaysa sa mga mamamayan ng isang bansa.
De Jure Segregation is racial separation which is forced by specific laws. De facto segregation is generally caused by socioeconomic conditions, not by statute.
the brown descion (de jure) and affirmative action (de facto)
De facto means "according to the fact", and refers to a situation as it actually exists, regardless of what the law specifies. The alternative is De jure, "according to the law". A de jure ruler occupies the ruling office or position established by law; a de facto ruler is the one who actually wields the power.
"According to the fact." Often opposed to de jure, "according to the law."
The English meaning of the Latin phrase 'de facto' is 'in' ['de'] 'fact' ['facto']. So the phrase 'de facto capital of the Caliphate' means the city that in fact serves as the capital city. The English meaning of the Latin phrase 'de jure' is 'in' ['de'] 'law' ['jure']. In this example, the city that the law recognizes as the capital isn't the city that actually fills the role.
The Latin phrase 'de facto' refers to something as being a fact. And so 'de facto' justice refers to what's in effect in terms of a system of reconciling degrees of guilt with degrees of punishment. But the system isn't backed up by the legal framework. A justice system that's based on and backed up by the existing laws is called 'de jure'. An example of 'de facto' and 'de jure' is the Islamic justice system of Afghanistan through the Taliban. Before the Taliban came to power, their justice was 'de facto', but not backed up by the existing laws, and therefore not 'de jure'. Once the Taliban came to power, their system was 'de jure'. But nowadays, their system of justice is back to 'de facto' wherever it isn't in accord with the established legal system.
Netherlands, though the legal (de jure) capital of the Netherlands is Amsterdam, the actual (de facto) seat of government and residence of the monarchy is The Hague.
