There is a bicameral legislature. The government is headed by a prime minister who is appointed by the President. The lower house of parliament is directly elected, the senate is indirectly elected. The President is elected every five years (until recently, every seven). When the President belongs to the same party as the parliamentary majority, he calls the shots, but when he belongs to a different party, he takes a backseat role (except possibly in foreign policy) whilst the parliamentary majority decides on policy and the President is in effect forced to pick a prime minister from among his opponents under these circumstances.
