Every country in the world has different government systems wherein few countries like China and Russia follow communism. Even with these differences, the only thing common among all these countries is that there is only one head of the state either the Prime Minister or the President. Over time & again, India’s PM Modi has maintained the top spot on the Global Leader Approval list this year (2022) by defeating the Presidents of many popular nations like US President Joe Biden. 

On the other hand, not to forget our President, Mr. Ram Nath Kovind had successfully served his five-year tenure in the office, which ended on the 24th of July, 2022. So, after the Presidential election, our next first tribal President is Droupadi Murmu. Did you know? President Ram Nath was the one who is successfully completing his journey during the COVID Pandemic, especially after 2020 & 2021, when the country was worst hit by the virus, at that time he instructed his staff to cut down expenses at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and asked them to make optimal usage of the resources and contributed his one month salary to PM Cares Fund.

Conclusion

In countries where the presidential system prevails, both the head of the state and the head of the government are the same whereas, in the parliamentary system, the head of the state is the President and the head of the government is the Prime Minister. India follows a Parliamentary form of government where the President is the head of the Indian state and commander in chief of all the Indian Armed Forces. He is indirectly elected by the directly elected members of the Parliament, and the legislative assemblies of the states and union territories of India. Ultimately, it is the President who has been granted the responsibility to protect our Constitution.
