Unified government exists when a single party has a majority in the Assembly and forms the Cabinet in a parliamentary regime, or when the party of the popularly elected executive President has a majority in the Assembly in a presidential or semi‐presidential regime. Congruence or cooperation between the executive and the legislative tend to produce more socially satisfactory policy outcomes.
