This chapter provides a broad-brush picture of the relationship between presidents and assemblies in Asia. As discussed in the Introduction, in countries with a popularly elected chief-executive (or president), the way the president deals with the legislature has a crucial impact on the governance of that country. This chapter is concerned with the ‘strength’ of Asian presidents vis-á-vis the assembly, with strength defined as the degree to which the president can realize her policy agenda for the nation.
