“Descriptions of the President, the Prime Minister, and the Vice President”
In a presidential system of government, the head of state is the president. The president’s job varies based on the political system in which they operate. The president is essentially ceremonial and symbolic in certain systems, representing the country in diplomatic matters and fulfilling ceremonial tasks. Other systems may grant the president significant executive powers, such as the authority to make appointments, veto legislation, and command the armed forces. notesplanet
In a parliamentary system of government, the prime minister is the head of government. Typically, the prime minister is the head of the political party or coalition of parties with the most seats in parliament. The prime minister is in charge of directing the government’s day-to-day operations, including the execution of policies and programmes, and is accountable to parliament for their actions. gkduniya
A vice president is a high-ranking person in a government or organization who serves as the president’s or CEO’s second in command. In certain political systems, the vice president is elected independently from the president and has particular constitutional tasks, such as presiding over the Senate or taking over the presidency if the president dies, resigns, or is removed from office. In some systems, the vice president is appointed by the president and mostly acts as a ceremonial position or as a presidential counsellor.
