Confused. Does the local govt follow the presidential or parliamentary system? Thought it was presidential at local and prefectural level as the mayor (and governor) are individually elected separate from the assembly. If this is the case, how can you hold confidence vote to remove as he (nor his party) never had to be confirmed by the assembly in the first place?
