The permanent constitution of the Syrian Arab Republic of 1973 established a political system that enjoys some characteristics of the Parliament System and Presidential System. The most important point of the parliament system adopted by the Syrian system is the flexible separation between powers, which results in reciprocal relation between the executive and the legislative power and can exercise a kind of censorship thereupon through several means and authorities vested in each power by the permanent constitution. Consequently, this leads the authorized officers to respect the provisions of the constitution and the rights and freedoms of individuals. It also guarantees settling down the rules of responsibility resulting from exercising the power subject of application through censorships between the two powers. Such censorship enables each power to question and punish the members of the other power if they deviate from the rules of exercising their powers and misuse their authorities.
