LUXEMBOURG

Luxembourg has a parliamentary form of government with a constitutional monarchy by inheritance. Executive power is exercised by the Grand Duke and the Council of Government (cabinet),which consists of a Prime Minister and several other ministers. The Prime Minister is the leader of the political party or coalition of parties having the most seats in parliament.

Legislative power is vested in the Chamber of Deputies, elected directly to 5-year terms. A second body, the Council of State, composed of representatives appointed by the Grand Duke, advises the Chamber of Deputies in drafting legislation.
