The Parliament of Botswana consists of the President and the National Assembly. In contrast to other Parliamentary systems, the Parliament elects its President directly (instead of having both a ceremonial President with the Prime Minister exercising real authority as head of government) for a set five-year term of office. A president can only serve 2 full terms. The President is both head of State and of Government in Botswana’s parliamentary republican system. The former President of Botswana was Ian Khama, who assumed the Presidency on 1 April 2008 and won a full five-year term in the proceeding Botswana General elections, which were held on 16 October 2009 and returned his Botswana General elections with a majority of 35 (total of 45) seats in the 61 seat Parliament. The Parliament building is where the President and National Assembly meet.
