Which Prime Minister? The Prime Minister here IS voted by popular vote. In his electorate, anyway. And his party gets power by how many people vote for people running for his party. At least I think so. Actually, the U.S president isn't technically brought in by popular vote. The voting is merely an indication for the panel to decide. Thus the U.S is not a true democracy but a republic.

I guess it would be up to those countries to decide.

No Tas you idiot. Your Prime Minister is not directly elected by the people but is chosen by the Lower House from amongst its elected members. Why is it that Americans know more about the way the Australian government works than Australians do? It's disgusting.

Sorry acryd. I guess you're probably right. But I must say that's generalising a bit. I'm sure not all Americans now more about the Australian government than all Australians.

Persoanlly, I think Acryd was being unecessarily rude there.
