Executive Power

Argentina: Executive Power

Executive power is vested in the President, who is the supreme head of the nation and controls the general administration of the country. The President issues the instructions and rulings necessary for the execution of the laws of the country, and takes part in drawing up and promulgating those laws. The President appoints, with the approval of the Senate, the judges of the Supreme Court and all other competent tribunals, ambassadors, civil servants, members of the judiciary, senior officers of the armed forces and bishops. The President may also appoint and remove, without reference to another body, the cabinet ministers. The President is Commander-in-Chief of all the armed forces. The President and Vice-President are elected directly for a four-year term, renewable only once.
