The Spanish political regime can be defined as a system of parliamentary government.
The most characteristic features of it are: the dualism of executive, the
neutral position of the head of state and the political responsibility of the government before the parliament. Besides, accepted legal solutions allow for the high
effectiveness of the governmental action.
The specification of the Spanish political stage, formed after 1978, allow to get
closer to the model of the parliamentary government (in the case of existence of
the majority government) or to the model of parliamentary committee (in the
case of the minority government). Thus, the main aim of this article is to present
some key features of the Spanish political regime.
