Government

 The government of Paraguay is a Constitutional Republic, also serving as a presidential representative democratic republic, wherein the President of Paraguay is both the head of state and head of government. There are three branches of government: the executive, legislative, and judicial. Executive power is exercised by the president, on a pluriform, multi-party system. Legislative is exercised through the two chambers of the National Congress (senate and Chamber of Deputies), and the judiciary is an independent branch from both the legislative and executive.
