According to the constitution promulgated on July 12, 1979, Kiribati is a presidential republic in the Commonwealth. The head of state and head of government is the president (Beretitenti), who is directly elected for 4 years. The legislature lies with the unicameral parliament (Maneaba ni Maungatabu), which includes 44 members elected for 4 years, an appointed representative of the island of Banaba and the attorney general ex officio. The president appoints the members of the cabinet responsible for parliament from among the members of the parliament. The president can be overthrown by parliament by a vote of no confidence; in the event of his vacancy, a council of state (3 members) takes over the office. The constitution gives the island of Banaba a special status.
