England Form of Government

The England form of Government is a constitutional monarchy, which combines a monarch head of state with a parliamentary system. While many consider the England form of government a democracy, which it is in practice, the Queen of England has many titular roles and is officially the head of state, although in practice, she has little political power or influence. The true influence and power in the England form of government comes from the prime minister and the Parliament.

One difference between the American and England form of government is the American President is really his own entity. Although he or she belongs to a political party, the citizens elect him or her independently of a party. In fact, a President can run on an “independent” ticket and really form his or her own party. The England form of government, like all parliamentary systems, is a party system. The citizens elect a party into power, and the head of the party becomes the Prime Minister. Sometimes coalition governments are formed by more than one party. The three main parties in the England form of government are Tory, Labor and the Liberal Democrats.

The government has executive power and carries out laws. In the England form of government, the Parliament is a legislative body, which reviews the government and proposes new laws. In the England form of government, there are two houses: The House of Lords and the House of Commons. The House of Commons is elected by the citizens and the House of Lords' members are appointed by the Queen.

In the England form of government, the Prime Minister proposes new legislation in his or her Queen's speech. These proposals are reviewed by the Parliament. Bills are approved by a majority vote in the House of Commons. You can get an idea of how the England form of government works in action is to visit the Parliament, or if you are in England, to listen to “Today in Parliament” on the radio.
