Detailed Solution for Test: Constitutional Design - 2 - Question 15
A head of state (or chief of state) is the public persona that officially represents the national unity and legitimacy of a sovereign state. Depending on the country's form of government and separation of powers, the head of state may be a ceremonial figurehead or concurrently the head of government. In the parliamentary system the head of state is the de jure leader of the nation, because the leader de facto is the prime minister (the head of government). In the semi-parliamentary system both heads of state and government are the leaders de facto of the nation (in practice the two divide the leadership of the nation among themselves).
