The administrative divisions of the country are the three districts of Luxembourg. The head of the country is the Grand Duke, his office is hereditary. He has among his rights; to approve into law, bills that are submitted to him for consideration, appoint officials into various posts including even the highest offices.

The main legislative body in the duchy is the Chamber of Deputies. This unicameral body consists of 60 deputies. Each of them is elected by means of general state elections. The term of office of each Deputy is 5 years. Each of the four districts of the Duchy is represented by a corresponding number of Deputies. It is worth noting that more than 100 years ago, all the voting rights for men and women were equalized. The main function of parliament is the adoption of laws. For the consideration of bills, special organizations have been set up, the so-called Sections. They give the first-hand assessment to any proposed bill, after which it is brought before the House of Deputies to be deliberated and voted on. After the bill has been approved by the Deputies, it is then passed on to the Duke himself for final approval. The bill is subsequently passed into law, and becomes effective three days after its printing. If however the bill does not receive the required number of votes, it is submitted for revision and later re-examined.
The head of the Executive Branch is the Government with the Prime Minister. They work together with the Head of State. The Prime Minister of the Country is elected, as a rule, from among the chairmen of the parties, who were able to obtain the largest number of votes from their Constituencies. Representatives of the executive power are responsible for the development and promotion of the Domestic and Foreign Policy of the Country. At the same time in Luxembourg, it is strictly prohibited for any member of the government to be simultaneously a Member of Parliament. Moreover, every department of the executive branch is responsible to the Chamber of Deputies for their decisions and activities. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
