Puerto Rico has a republican form of government with separation of powers modeled on the US Constitutional, with an elected bicameral legislature, an independent judiciary and an elected executive. As an unincorporated territory of the United States organized as a Commonwealth, the powers of its government are delegated by the Congress of the US and are not under the full protection of the US Constitution.
