The Spanish Constitution of 1978 establishes the basic framework of the government and the legislature. The Spanish Parliament is bicameral, consisting of a Senate and a Chamber of Deputies. The King appoints the Prime Minister who leads the government. The Prime Minister is the head of the Cabinet and selects the Ministers who administer the ministries.
