Spanish Government and Military

The Spanish government is a Constitutional Monarchy formed in 1978 after Juan Carlos I was proclaimed king in 1975. The government is split into three main branches. The President (Prime Minister) who forms the first branch is nominated by the Monarch and is approved by the Congress of Deputies and does not hold much power but acts like the country’s Chief Executive. The second branch is the Cortes Generales which is split into two parts, the lower and upper houses. The lower house consists of the Congress of Deputies and the upper house is comprised of the Assembly of Senators. the Cortes Generales can propose laws and amend the constitution. However, the the lower house can override a Senate veto with a majority vote. The Congress of Deputies also has the power to confirm or dismiss the President. The third and final branch of government is the Constitutional Court which was created by the government to protect the people. Anyone who thinks the government is infringing on their constitutional rights can make an appeal to this court. This court also checks the constitutionality of all laws, acts, and regulations set forth by the government. Spain has a very stable government that will serve it’s citizens for many years to come.

With 531 planes, Spain protects it's skies, and with 46 war ships patrolling it’s coasts, Spain protects its coasts. Spain is constantly trying to improve it’s weapons to modern standards and is in a world-wide race with many other nations to become a stronger military force.
