Abstract

The objective of this panel is to explore the varieties of executive-legislative relations under the concept of accountability of presidents. While there are different ways of how presidential, parliamentary, and semi-presidential systems guarantee (or try to guarantee) presidential accountability, their goal is ultimately the same. Thus, we ask in this panel what instrument exist to secure a certain level of presidential accountability and how do votes of impeachment, votes of confidence, and the separation of office and mandate are adapted in different political systems and regimes and how can they actually influence the balance of powers and efficiency of the system of government.
