Bahamas Government
Bahamas Government - TravelPuppy.com
The Bahamas has a bicameral parliament, composed of a 16 member Senate, whose membership is appointed, and a 40 strong House of Assembly directly elected for a 5 year term, has legislative powers.

The British monarch has formal executive powers, vested in a Governor General, although in practice the Governor General almost consistently acts upon the advice of a Cabinet of Ministers appointed from the House of Assembly.
