Germany is a federal state and is divided into sixteen federal entities (these are called states). Germany is based on a parliamentary system. Its government is only accountable to Parliament. Their parliament is bicameral, the Bundesrat (the Upper House) represents the states and the Bundestag (the Lower House) represents the people.

The fundamental principles that Germany is governed by is based on a formal document, called the Basic Law of 1949. This text was supposed to be the preamble to their constitution. In order to establish a Constitution, the State needs full freedom but Germany wasn't free in 1949 or have a unified Nation.

In 1990 they revised the text and did not create a new constitution. The Germans held that the state was still fragile and that the population not ready to undergo further changes. Germany's Basic Law is identical to any other constitution; it just doesn't go under the same name.

The Basic Law is composed of one hundred and forty-six articles that are divided into eleven titles.

We then process and analyze the Articles 67 and 68 of the Basic Law we see that both are included in Title VI ?the "Federal Government".
These Articles state that a parliamentary regime like one that exists in Germany is characterized by the provision of an executive and a legislative institution that have the same power.
