In a presidential system specifically in the United States of America (US), the time taken to pass a bill can be anywhere from a few weeks to many years. The ease in legislation is due to the structure of this system whereby the majority grouping in the lower house i.e.
the direct representatives of the people forms the executive.
A US president does not face such questioning by Congress.
Traditionally, questioning the president is through a press conference which is less frequent, less combative and more in control by the president.
Presidents are also forced to serve a fixed term in office, unlike a legislative cabinet, which has an ambiguous duration.
While these are the two basic models of governance, this essay will also examine hybrid models, often referred to as 'semi-presidential systems', or 'presidential-parliamentary systems' .
The executive must answer the question of the legislature relating to administration to their satisfaction always tries to remain alert, because this influences its electoral prospects.
Under the same model includes a tradition called the “Question Period” wherein the prime minister and his cabinet members face tough questions from members of the opposition party.
Under the Westminster model, parliament is considered the highest organ of state.
Ministers are accountable and responsible to parliament which directly represents the people.
