A visual of the Checks and Balances of the French Republic.



The French Republic has 3 branches of government with checks and balances, so that one part of the government doesn't become too powerful. A bill becomes a law only if it is approved by the government. An order is a directive-it is not permanent, and it might need funding by the government depending on what it is.





The Legislative Branch

• The Legislative Branch consists of the Senate. The Senate is a group of 5 members.

• The Legislative Branch is the only branch that can create Bills.

• The Senate can only pass a Bill or an Order if it agrees with a 3/5 vote.

• The Senate can override the President’s veto or edit of a Bill or an Order with at least a 4/5 vote.

• The Prime Minister is the head of the Senate.

• Senators are voted individually.

The Executive Branch

• The Executive Branch consists of the President and the Prime Minister.

• The President can veto or edit an Order or a Bill.

• If the Senate Overrides the President, the Prime Minister gets to decide if the Bill or Order gets to go the Judicial Branch

• The President is elected, but the Prime Minister is picked by the elected President, so the Prime Minister is not elected.

• The President can make executive orders with the approval of the Legislative and Judicial Branches.

The Judicial Branch

• The Judicial Branch consists of 3 Supreme Court Justices.

• The Judicial Branch determines if a bill becomes a law or an order can be passed if it is constitutional.

• If an order or a bill is against the constitution, then the bill cannot become a law.

• The Supreme Court Justices are picked by the President.

Section 4: Voting and How to Run For Office
