Question

What is one main differences between a president and a prime minister ?

Answer

Well now, let's explore a bit shall we? It appears that there are a few countries that do not have a president, such as the United Kingdom. On the other hand, there are a handful of nations that lack a prime minister. From my understanding, in countries that do have both, the president primarily serves a representative role. This may include engaging with other heads of states and signing important documentation. Now, if we shift our attention to the prime minister, we see that they wield more of the decision-making power. This may involve determining policies and determining the course of foreign relations, among other things.
