Government
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a hereditary and constitutional monarchy. The unicameral Chamber of Deputies has legislative power, and its 60 members are directly elected to serve a five-year term. Executive power is formally in the hands of the Grand Duke, but is in practice wielded by the Government.

Domestic politics are typical of Western European nations, with the Christian Social Party (CSV), the Luxembourg Socialist Workers’ Party (LSAP) and the Democratic Party (DP) being traditionally represented in the Parliament and alternating as members of coalition governments. More recently, these have been joined in the Chamber of Deputies by an environmentalist party (DEI GRENG) and the Action Committee for Democracy and Pensions Justice (ADR).
