Cohabitation is defined in French political history as the situation where the Prime Minister and President of the Republic are of opposing political parties. In fact, a broader definition states that cohabitation means the coexistence of an executive from one party and a legislative majority from another party. This is often the case in the United States of America.

It is thus readily apparent that cohabitation in the United States and in France has two totally different dimensions. This is both in terms of the origin of this coexistence and in terms of its impact on political practice.

The political systems in both the countries are different. The U.S. follows a presidential system, while France follows a parliamentary system.
