Should Germany Be A Presidial Republic?

Thu Mar 06, 2008 5:31 pm

Hi guys ,

Our former President Roman Herzog just asked yeasterday for a reform of our suffrage system , mainly because of the new Party "Die Linke" , which could make that Germany will have a minority Government in future .

My Question is , should Germany give more Power to the President allowing the People to elect him , and the Chancellor to have the role of the second man in the State .

I think we should let it like it is , this is democracy !

What the hell is a "Presidial" Republic?

This is not really any difference than other countries who have a "head of state" (President) and a separate "head of government" (Prime Minister). Some countries elect a President directly, others have him elected by Parliament. Does it really matter, as long as the balance of duties and power does not change?
It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.
