US President is selected by people for a tenure of 4 years.He is the head of the state as well as head of the Govt.He has supreme authority over the US Congress. Since the Referendum on the Election of French President of 1962,the President is directly elected by Universal suffrage.Earlier they followed electoral college system.By another Referendum his tenure was reduced from 7 to 5 years.Hope you r clear with the concept Ranjeet

  10. THE PRESIDENTIAL SYSTEM The President is both the head of the state and the head of the government. The President of the United States of America. The US President is directly elected by the people. He personally chooses and appoints all Ministers The law making is still done by the legislature (called the Congress in the US), but the president can veto any law. Most importantly, the president does not need the support of the majority of members in the Congress and neither is he answerable to them He has a fixed tenure of four vears and completes it even if his party does not have a majority in the Congress. This model is followed in most of the countries of Latin America and many of the ex-Soviet Union countries *
