In Canada, we have both the British Monarch as head of state (represented in Canada by the Governor General) and the Prime Minister as head of government.
It would be beneficial to have a relatively long term of office, in the range of eight years or so, renewable once for a period of up to another eight years.

He said the government had already given 11 million US dollars for slum upgrading work the agency was undertaking in Ghana, Tanzania and Sri Lanka, and that additional funding would depend on the outcome of the pilot projects.

 Libraries & Culture, Bookplate Archive
The Library of the British House of Commons was established in 1818 with the appointment of its first librarian, the conversion of a small committee room at the Palace of Westminster into library quarters, and the transfer of parliamentary papers, printed journals and tracts, and a small collection of books from several scattered locations.
The collections in the Commons’ Library, which predate somewhat the establishment of the Library itself, were in the first instance the official printed records of the House and volumes of parliamentary papers.
Today the Commons’ Library (use of which is limited for the most part to Members of Parliament) provides the services of a modern legislative library for its users: a reference and research library for the House, its committees, and individual Members.
