In presidential systems of government, the legislature is considered a power branch which is equal to, and independent of, the executive.
Most legislatures are either bicameral or unicameral, although historically there have also been rare incidences of two separate chambers, usually described as an upper house and a lower house, which may differ in duties, powers, and methods for the selection of members.
Although the final draft of legislation introduced by the government almost always passes, these legislatures are generally not labelled "rubber stamps" because legislators are involved in the drafting and amendment of bills.
