Andorra: Political System

Andorra is a parliamentary principality. The heads of state are the Bishop of La Seu d'Urgell and the President of the French Republic, who rule as co-princes (Coprínceps). The parliament is a unicameral system with 28 members (4 representatives per valley) and is elected every 4 years. Since 1990 the government (Govern) has been formed from seven ministers who are not allowed to belong to parliament. Andorra's head of government (Cap de Govern) is elected by parliament. He is only allowed to exercise his office for two consecutive terms.
