Kiribati elects on national level a head of state - the president - and a legislature. The president is elected for a four-year term by the people. The House of Assembly (Maneaba ni Maungatabu) has 42 members, 40 elected for a four-year term in single-seat and multi-seat constituencies, 1 delegate from Banaba Island and 1 ex officio member. Kiribati has a two-party system, which means that there are two dominant political parties, with extreme difficulty for anybody to achieve electoral success under the banner of any other party.
