Resumo: 

How does parliamentary organization affect the legislative success rate of the Executive in presidential and parliamentary systems at the subnational level? Why are some governors much more successful than others even though they share the same basic constitutional designs? Furthermore, why are some governors much more successful than the literature expects? This essay explores these three questions with a comparison of Brazilian and German states from 1990 to 2010.
