Presidential and Parliamentary system: a comparison

Presidential and Parliamentary system: a comparison

by: Karla Katigbak

          Philippines is now facing challenges on what system of government can make a proggressive country. For you, is it a Parliamentary or a Presidential system?
          Parliamentary system is distinguished by the executive branch of government being dependent on the direct or indirect support of the parliament often expressed through a vote of confidence. A parliament is a legislative. The name is derived from the french parliament, the action of parler (to speak) in parliament is a talk, a discussion, hence a meeting where people discuss matters of parliamentary government. The authority is vested in a parliament and there is no clear cut in separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches, leading to a lack of the checks and balances found in a presidential republic. In a parliamentary system, people vote the members of the parliament and from the members of the parliament they will vote for their prime minister and the vote of no confidence can be done by the members of the parliament if they thought that the prime minister is not capable enough to lead. There are many advantages of a parliamentary systyem. First is that it is easierand quicker to to pass legislation with in a parliamentary system. This is because the executive branch is dependent upon the direct or indirect support of the legislative branch and often includes members of the legislative. Second, the World bank study found that parliamentary systems are associated with lower corruptions. Lastly, parties in parliamentary system have had much tighter idelogy than in presidential system.There are also criticism of parliamentarism and the main criticism of many parliamentary system is that the head of the government cannot be directly voted by the people. In presidential system, the presidents is directly chosen by the people , or by a set of electors directly chosen by the people but in a parliamentary system the prime minister is elected by the party leadership. There are also many kinds of parliamentary system like the British Parliament which is often referred to as the ” Mother of Parliaments”. It is from England and it is the model form of other paraliamentary system.
          Presidential system, also called a congresional system, is a system of government where the executive branch exists and presides supports from the legislative. There are many characteristics of a presidential system of goverment. One is that the president is both the head of state and the government and he/she has a fixed term of office. The president has also the power to pardon or commute sentences of convicted criminals and he/she is directly elected by the people. The president can be removed from office through the process of impeachment. There are also criticism in a presidential system like it is not constitutionally stable that’s why it has tendency towards authoritarianism. It is also difficult to remove an unsuitable president from office before his/her term has expired. In a presidential system, the president usually has special privileges in the enactment of legislation, namely the possession of a power of veto over legislation of bills. In the enactment of legislation, the president has the power to directly propose laws or cast or vote on legislation. The central principle in presidential system is that the difference between legislative and executive branches of government. The executive, legislative and judiciary are performing their own duty and this is the separation of power but they must check each other to make sure if the other branches is performing their job properly and this is the check and balance.
          There are many difference between parliamentary and presidential system and they have their own disadvantages and advantages. Some of our government officials are pursuing for presidential to parliament and others are contented. But still the question is what is the best for our country and for the people? For me, any system will do as long as it will benefit the people. Any system can make our life better , the real problem is the character of our government officials.

    para sa akin, maayos naman ang sistema natin. ang mali ay ang mga taong nagpapakilos. ang ganda-ganda ng konstitusyon natin, sobrang makatao nga eh. ang mali lang sobrang nababalewala. mapa-presidential man yan o parliament, tingin mo ba may pagbabago kung ang mga nasa likod nito ay pare-pareho lang?

    • ou nga tama kah peo mas tama yung nag published nito na kahit alin ang piliin basta mga tao ang nagbe2nefit!!!!!!!!!!

      • LEZDOTHIS Said:

        Our system SHOULD be changed. If you look at it closely, popularity contest ang pag-elect sa presidente natin. Pero sa parliamentary, merong shadow cabinet na titingnan ang lahat ng galaw ng
        acting cabinet, napakagaling ng sistema.

  2. i’m pro federalism but i’m not really all over parliamentary system…

    with our type of political peeps, parliamentary wont work….

    presidential is not working since our presidential system needs refining and fine tuning for current times.

    our political system was heavilly patterned after the american’s (except for the federal eklavoo since we were suppposed to be a state of the USA..)

    i agree that the system is the one who’s supposed to be blamed, but it doesnt mean that we have to change it completely… we have to find the loopholes and fill it up with reinforced concrete, so stubborn politicaians cant break them.

    If i were ask to choose i’ll really go for federalism but just like richard not totaly to parliamentary…

    but really, should we blame the system?

    or maybe the people right?…

    for me… the system and the people should go hand in hand… parang ang ideal no? at ang hirap matupad…

  4. Gerald Valhet Mesina Said:

    I dont think taht parliamentary form will work effectively in our government or in the philippine setting knowing the fact that almost all the polirticians here in the country do not value their own principle and taht most of them are known as political turncoats …………..

    In a Parliamentary system the competion is very strict and the people wil bge protected by differnt parties who wish for thr benefit of the people or for the private benefit ….

    But the question is this when we adapt the parliamentary form of government will this Politicians fight each other to be able to maintain transparency and accountabilitry or they will conceal the blunders and negligence of each other .

    But in how this form of govenment operates is very good but we need assurance and security here in our country ….

    G.SCER.

  5. lea baluyot Said:

    I think the system does not matter. No matter how good the system it is, if the people in it will only abuse their powers its useless.

  6. Vanessa Karen Fajardo Said:

    When I attended a forum on charter change, a shift of presidential government to parliamentary system of government, I heard someone who said that we don’t really need to change the government itself. There’s nothing wrong with the system, but its the people who runs the system. “Ang cha-cha ay hindi charter change kundi character change!!!”

    Well, so far I think that cha-cha is really for character change. Presidential form of government suits for the country. I mean, again there’s nothing wrong with the presidential form of gov’t. A shift may cause the government to bug down. Maganda ang systema ng gobyerno dahil ang ating konstitusyon ay makatao at makabayan ang tema.

    Nice karla!!!

  7. jay-r lumbo Said:

    kahit ano pa mangh sistema iyan. walang mangyayari kung inaabuso ng isang lider ang kanilang powers… hindi naman sila power rangerswala naman silang megazords… ang pinaka-cute na gawin ng mga nasa pwesto ay magsilbi ng buong puso sa mamamayan. dahil walang kwenta ang isang sistema kung, sorry for the word madam president, kung bulok ang pamamalakad ng nakaluklok sa pwesto…

    nice mahusay na article….

    I am pro parliamentary and federalism in this country. I am not afraid to change, there should be a change.

    However, para sa kin ang sistema pa rin ang may problema, kasi halimbawa, ang mga politicians nature na sa kanila na magnakaw (karamihan sa kanila) ngunit kahit ang magnanakaw kahit gusto niyang magnakaw kung may matibay namang sistema ng batas ay hindi rin sila makakapagnakaw, kaya we need the system. AND BECAUSE I DONT BELIEVE NA MAPAPALITAN ANG MGA TRAPO SA GOBYERNO, ALMOST A CENTURY NA SILA SA GOBYERNO. however, yeah ideally the people and the system should work hand in hand.

  9. cmdr.rommal medoza Said:

    im pro for parliamentary system but in the attitude of our politicians today,i can say,parliamentary system is a way for monotomy of politics

  10. arjay Said:

    within comparison to both government, parehong pwdeng maging effective ang isang bansa, as long as the laws or rules are being governed properly. pero sa atin, nakikita kong npakahirap ipatupad ng kahit na anong batas. kahit nga mga cmpleng rules lang wla ng mkasunod eh..

  11. Irene Said:

    I think as Deng xiaoping said i don’t care whether the cat is black or white as long as it catches the rat.. any system will do but don’t get me wrong in saying this, a good political structure cannot supply life to itself neither can a good leader move through an illogical structure and political hierarchy…. one cannot cannot live without the other PA101

  12. claudette Said:

    it is not the system it is the people who governs and the people governed who’s really important here. kz im sure its not that easy to rule though u got the power and influence still u have to have the people’s support and trust to be able to run the government effectively.

  13. melanie aldeon Said:

    hindi nmn kc system ung problema sa atin eh kundi ung mga taong namumuno!!!
    d n kailangan pang palitan ang form ng government, dpt palitan ung mga official na “bulok” ang sistema!

  14. 2nel_sanchez Said:

    yah right…any gov’t system will do…as long as the people governing are good and trustworthy….sabi nga sa news noong nakaraang araw…CHAracter CHAnge ang dapat mangyari…dahil kahit matuloy ang CHArter CHAnge and ung mga TRAPOs pa rin mamumuno…well malauangpagunlad…
    ei..sana mas niliagyan moh pa ng own comment…but its nice…

  18. Givah Said:

    we all know that the only constant thing in this world is change, so, malay natin baka successful ang parliamentary system sa ating bansa. At sa nakikita ko, ang mga bansang may parliamentary form of government ay mauunlad naman,… panahon na siguro upang magkaroon ng bagong simula.

  23. Jay-R Lumbo Said:

    akalain mo nga naman.. sa pagreresearch ko lalabas tong article ni karla.. astig..

  24. clane Said:

    for me the there’s nothing wrong with the systm as what others have said, the problem is the people who governs us. changing the government system would never change the lifestyles we had right now. the politicians and we people of the philippines must go hand in hand to create a better and good government

  25. no nid to become parliament, remember france a semi presidential gov’t now, dati silang parliamentary gov’t, at marami pa tayong binabayarang utang, di pa handa ang bansang pilipinas tandaan nyo po yan

  26. lalo lang po tataas ang bilang ng corruption sa bansa kc po walang check and balance sa gov’t, remember ang i aaplay po sa atin ay seperation of our regions di po separation of state, tuldok lng po tayo kumpara sa u s of a, ikaw ba papayag mag kawatak watak ang ating munting bansang pilipinas?
    kumakanta pa silang pilipinas kong mahal, samantalang gusto nilang baguhin ang sistema ng gobyerno

  31. abikarl Said:

    as we observed to the system of our government,it s really wll systematzed..spcally our constitution…the prblem are the prsons who hve gven a prvlge to govern our government, whch they abuse the power that they r holding just for thr bnfits not for the comon good.
    now hre comes the cha-cha,most of the offcials who exert mre effort to legalize this charter change has good intentions whch they frequently used to peresuade the filiupino people but behind ths intntions and plans, its just their indvdual benfits they want to earn through the use of their programs…and defntly WE whom they persuade by their technique are the one who suffer the consequences…
    thus its not the system of our government that needs to under go constant flux but its the system and character of the governing offcials that needs a massive change..well i do agree to one of the contributors hre which she says that it must be a character-change not a charter-change..

  32. jhaypee Said:

    sa akin lang ha. mas magandang maging parliamentary ang bansa natin. although na presidential is good pero nag wowork lang ang presidential system sa mga malalaking bansa like US. wag po natin i kumpara ang US sa philippines. if i can still remember, nung time ni manuel quezon we’re second sa Japan, ibig sabihin pangalawa tayo sa pinakamayamang bansa sa ASIA. Japan has a parliamentary system of government at pag tinignan mo sobrang yaman ng bansang JAPAN. nakakalungkot mang isipin pero mas maunlad na sa atin ang singapore at malaysia. hay……go parliamentary system of govenment!!!

  33. oi panget nmn nyang gawa mu!!@#%^&*()_+^_^

  34. nardo Said:

    hanggat nananatili ang mala-pyudal at mala-kolonyal na katangian ng lipunang pilipino, patuloy na malulugmok sa labis na kahirapan ang ating bansa. matagal nang binigyan ng pagkakataon ang mga matatalinong ginoo na palakarin ang gobyerno, panahon na siguro upang mismong mga mamamayan ang humawak at kumontrol dito. at tanging sa pagsusulong ng isang pambansang demokrasya makakamit ng sambayanan ang kasaganahan ng buhay kundi pati na ang tunay na kalayaan na matagal nang inaasam. tatsulok ang lipunan. panahn na upang baliktarin ang matagal nang bulok na sistema sa bansa.
    PAMBANSANG DEMOKRASYA, ISULONG!!!

    question to the author:
    what are the sociocultural effects of parliament to the Philippines?

  36. kinns Said:

    we were having a debate on September 15 Topic: resolved, that the parliamentary system be used in the Philippines rather than the Presidential form of Goverment we are in the affirmative side and in necessity as well, i need information, about why is it necessary??? thank you…^_^ v

  37. roberth tau-toan Said:

    parliament because:1.easier and quicker to pass legislation because the executive branch is dependent upon the direct or indirect support of the legislative branch and often includes members of the legislative.
    2.world bank study found that it is associated with lower corruptions.
    3.their parties had much tighter ideology than in presidential.4.parliament is always democratic and able to dissolve government and order a new election…if we’ll use the parliamentary form of government there is an abrupt development in our country.as we have observed in our country adapting the presidential form,no transformation of development exist. to minimize corruptions and crimes,go for parliament .

  50. anne Said:

    tanong ko lang ha? bakit kaya kailangan pa nilang mangurakot eeehh marami naman silang pera? kaya nga kahit anong gagawin natin mga filipino hindi parin umonland ang ating bansa, dahil sa mga taong walang magawa kong hindi magnakaw ng pera na hindi naman sa kanila imbis na ipamahagi nila ang kanilang pera sa mahihirap ninanakawan pa taying mga mahihirap kaya nga hindi umonlad ang ating bansa dahil sa mga pulitikong nangongona sa ating bansa!!!!!

    Is there any country in this world that made it to a level of “a great country”? What’s the type of government they have? As far as i know, NO DEMOCRATIC country has ever reached such greatness. Japan – Constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary government, not democratic yet a great country… USA – federal constitutional republic, not democratic.. United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand – Constitutional Monarchy… Russia – Federation.. On the other hand, India – a democratic, the poorest country.. Our very own, Philippines, home for corruption, DEMOCRATIC, a poor country…

    Actually, I’m not in favor of any type of government.. I support none. For only God governs my life…

  57. Black Feather of Satan Said:

    Mga tangang Hindi nakakahawak o nakakabasa ng bibliya lang ang mga taong ginagamit ang Relihiyon sa Pamumulitika… alam ng karamihan na nakasaad sa bibliya na “Thou shalt not use the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who uses His name in vain.” The third commandment forbids all profaning and abusing of anything whereby God makes Himself known. (Malachi 1:6-8; Lev. 20:3; 19:12; Matthew 5:34-37; Isa. 52:5.) It is not simply a matter of cursing or using the name God or Jesus vainly in that way. It is true that God’s name is not to be used in that manner.
    kaya sana lahat ng Pilipino sana mamulat kayo wag kayong paloko…

Ma-influence kaya niya si Noynoy to go parliament? Let’s see happens.

    wag nyong isisi sa mga namumuno ang kinahaharap na problema ng bansa natin, kahit sabhin natin na may kakulangan sila sa pagiging leader ng bansa eh hindi tama na isisi sa kanila, dahil kung hihimayin at sasaliksikin nyong mabuti ang dahilan nang lumalalang kahirapan ng bansa, bakit hindi natin ibaling ito sa mga kapwa natin na iresponsable?tulad nang? pag may nakitang bawal umihi dito?dun pa din umiihi?isa pa?bawal magtapon dito ng basura?anung ginagawa ng ibang tao?dun pa din nag tatapon?what i mean is, kung ginagamit lng sana natin nang buo ang pagana ng utak,lalo na sa mga mangmang na kababayan natin na napakataas ng pride,e hindi sana ganito ang bansa natin…isipin nyong mabuti kung anu ang ibig kong sabhin…

    • rhyen Said:

      Sasagutin kita dito brad. kaya umiihi yng mga tao sa gilid dahil walang nanghuhuli, kaya sila nagtapon dun sa labas o kanto dahil ulit walang nanghuhuli, ibig sabihin may batas tayo di lang napatupad ng maigi, kumbaga ningas kugon lang yung mga batas..Halimbawa may umihi aba hulihin at bigyan ng parusa..pag may nagtapos aba ikulong mo iwan ko lang kng may gagawa pa dun…Ito pa idagdag ko pa yung mga overpass isipin mo bakit marami pa rin ang di gumagamit nyan at nakipag patentero pa sa kalsada dahil “again walang nanghuhuli..peace

      • nicCo Said:

        uhm, sasagutin ko lng din yan, so ang ibig mong sabihin e kelangan may taong magbabantay plage? hindi ba pwedeng gumawa ng batas at sundin nlamang ito ng walang nagbabantay. cguro naman alam na natin ang tama at mali, hindi na kailangan pang hihintayin mo pa na huliin ka bago ka magbago, ang kelangan lng e disiplina brad, kaya nating makuha un kung may disiplina tyu sa ating sarili. “bawal umihi dito” – hindi ba klaro na bawal umihi doon? andun na ung point mismo e na mali ang umihi doon. alangan namang ihian mo pa un maliban nlng talaga kung ikaw ay may disiplina, peace

      • I think the reason why we cannot surpass the problems here in the Philippines is that, masyado tayong nag eenjoy sa tinatawag nating “RIGHTS/ KARAPATAN”, oo alam ko tama lahat ng mga nakasaad dun, pero nagiging masama na ang nangyayari due to the fact that people overuse that power. try to look at Singapore, the wealthiest country in South East, having a parliamentary system of government, look there demography just as small as Manila maybe and yet they are more powerful than the Philippines and belong to the top 20 countries having a high GDP/capita. Let us admit folks, in the system of government we have right now, it is a matter of ‘ARTISTA APPEAL’ already not the credibility of the politician running for candidacy. peace

    parliamentary system works best. it seems erroneous that ideally we consider the existence of presidential form worth sustainable to acquire progress for our country in spite of the reality. i will somehow object with the premise that parliamentary form will definetely provide no guarantee for efficient laws to be passed and hasty ones will be provided for the state. it is impossible, considering that there will still be the same body to scrutinize the effectivity and necessity of the bills. as an addition the tedious deliberations of proposed bill will no longer be time- consuming nor money- wasting. the convenient passage of law does not mean that it will lack intellectual deliberation, there will just be alleviated worthless arguements compared with the presidential ones. and come on, im aware with the fact that some claims that it is the people that must be altered or actually their character, but within this critical circumstances of massive poverty and political tribulations of our country pretending that to act for political reform will create not that much avenue for progress is something hilarious for me. let’s work with the search and analysis of what really suits for our country. we are not after the guarantee but with the probability, it is better tod o something essential for reform for the system that actually in some point structure the bahaviour and lives of the political actors than just perennial utter, that the system is nothing talking about the people. for everything lies with the character of those officials.

  72. BeinG_gOod Said:

    there really are so many advantages to adopting a parliamentary system over the more inefficient and gridlock-prone presidential system, yet so many ordinary Filipinos without much of a sincere desire to objectively understand the real merits of considering a shift to the Parliamentary System just easily dismiss it without even having intelligent reasons to justify their rejection.

  75. khen Said:

    i really like all your comments in dis site . i know that there’s always a disagreement or agreement in our minds but try to think about what this isue may do for us and wat wuld happen f we insist it to be happen? our decision lies in our hands and it’s our own choice 2 choose from parliamentary to presidential..is it advantageous in our part as a concern citizen?

  76. Casseah Said:

    ok lng naman ang presidential system..ayusin na lang nila ang pamamalakad.At least under presidential, we have checks and balances that prevents one branch to be more powerful than the other which makes us free from the high possibility of having a dictatorial government.

  77. Casseah Said:

    under Parliamentary,there might be laws which can be passed easily that can lead to the oppression of people. I’m not saying parliamentary gov. is not good but what if the leaders who have the authority become abusive of their powers.

  78. kevin Said:

    grabi may debate kami ngaun .. binasa ko tlga mga comment ninyo. i dedefend namin ang PARLIAMENTARY..

  79. kevin Said:
