For democratic countries, the separation of powers is characteristic, where the parliament is the highest representative and legislative body of the state. In modern states, parliaments are legislative bodies, i.e. empowered to pass laws, as well as, in tone or other measure, form and control the executive branch. A democratic regime is characterized by political freedom of citizens and equality of all before the law. Democracy is the only regime that ensures not only the influence of the state on society, but the influence of the people on power.
In the modern world, citizens exercise their right to govern the state not personally, but through their elected representative – the President.
