1. The parliamentary system has an advantage.

The majority party elects the Prime Minister, so legislative and executive power are combined.

There is little chance for obstruction for solely political purposes, like the GOP preventing improving the economy, hoping voter dissatisfaction will bring them back to power.

One party is in control and does what it thinks is best for the country and voters judge them on the merits.

If the public doesn’t like what they do, they can throw that party out and give power to the other side.

There is accountability with this system.
