Britain is a democratic country with a constitutional monarch. The House of Commons and the House of Lords, together with the Monarch, is the structure of the Parliament. The Parliament passes the law and comes to a conclusion for major issues raised by the ruling party. It also approves the taxation and various departments of laws.

The Government is headed by the Prime Minister and he also appoints the rest of the Ministers who leads separate government departments. The House of Commons which is the axis of Parliamentary power, elects 659 elected Members of Parliament (MP's), each in lieu of a local constituency.

Parliaments at Westminster, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales also have their own respective devolved administrations. The supreme legislative body in the British Government is the Parliament. The Lord Chancellor is the highest court of appeal.
