In a parliamentary system, the head of government is often styled premier, prime minister etc. In presidential systems or imperial systems, the head of government may be the same person as the head of state, who is often titled president of the republic or monarch.

In systems where the head of government possesses a large amount of power, he or she may be provided with an official residence, as with a head of state.
