Title:A comparative study of the constitutional position and powers of the president of Zambia
Author:Aihe, D.O.
Periodical:The Nigerian Law Journal
Geographic term:Zambia
Subject:heads of State
Abstract:Most ex-colonial territories have adopted republican constitutions; these presidential regimes may either be executive (where power is concentrated in one individual) or nonexecutive. In Zambia the executive power of the Republic is vested in a President who is also the head of state. In exercising his powers, the President must keep within the perimeter of the Constitution and he acts, unless it is otherwise provided, in his own 'deliberate judgment'. The author considers the powers of the President when dealing with his functions in the following parts: 1. Qualification and election - 2. Functions and powers - 3. The President and the legislature - 4. Removal of the President from office - 5. The President and the Cabinet - 6. The functions of the Cabinet. Notes.
