Nations identify their forms of government by how their legislative, executive, and judicial systems are structured. The most primary identifier of any nation is which democratic system it follows: presidential, or parliamentary. Both are built on a single democratic principle that all elections should be free and competitive in order to determine their leaders and how they are able to govern. (Charles Hauss 41) Organized government is essential to avoid chaos and anarchy. Without authority and rule, free will and malicious intent without known repercussions can often negatively influence decision making and actions taken by the people to gain power over land, people, money, and any other materialistic or idolized subject.

Other forms include the parliament and presidential, and hybrid of direct democracy. A representative democracy entails a system in which citizens’ vote for a representative who enacts legislations and policies to govern the community and maintain order in the society (Janda, 2012). On the other hand, a direct democracy is a form that the people vote directly for the policies they want by carrying out a referendum. In a parliamentary democracy, which is a representative one, the parliament is elected by the representatives chosen by people and can be dismissed by the officials in case of misconduct (Newton, 2010). The presidential democracy, unlike the parliamentary one, it is the president, who is democratically elected by the people, who is the head of the government and can dismiss the parliament, and at some states he or she is given the mandate to elect the Parliament.
