Cape Verde is a representative of the parliamentary republic stable. The Constitution adopted in 1980 (and revised in 1992, 1995 and 1999) define the basic principles of the government. The President is the head of state and is elected by popular vote for a term of five years. The Prime Minister is the head of government and appoints other ministers and state secretaries. The Prime Minister is in turn appointed by the National Assembly and the president. The National Assembly members are elected by popular vote every five years.
The judiciary includes a Supreme Court – whose members are appointed by the President, the National Assembly and member of the Council of the Judiciary – and regional courts. Separate courts hear civil cases, constitutional issues and criminal law.
Cape Verde follows a policy of nonalignment and seeks cooperative relations with all friendly states. Angola, Brazil, China, Cuba, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Senegal, Russia and the United States maintain embassies in Praia. Cape Verde is actively interested in foreign policy, particularly in Africa. It has bilateral relations with Portuguese-speaking countries and is a member of several international organizations. Cape Verde has also participated in most international conferences on economic and political issues since 2007, when it acquired a privileged partnership status with the EU under the Cotonou Agreement.
The military of Cape Verde consists of a coast guard and army, upon whom 0.7% of GDP was spent in 2005.
