Government of the Dominican Republic


Leonel Fernandez of the Partia Libertad Democratica (purple party)

The government is a representative democracy based on the French system. There is a President, Congress, and House of Representatives, who are all elected individually. The President has 'absolute rule' in terms of decisions, with neither the Congress nor the House of Representatives having veto power. The 29 provinces and the capital each have their own civil government. There are three main political parties - the Partido Revolucionario (PRD), the Partido de la Libertad Democratica (PLD), and the Partido Reformista Social Cristiano (PRSC). Presidential elections are held every four years. The last election was held in May 2004, where Dr. Leonel Fernandez of the Partia Libertad Democratica (PLD), was elected President' replacing Hipolito Mejia of the Partido Revolucionario (PRD).
