Повноваження Президента

Посада Президента Сполучених Штатів Америки – одна з найбільш наділених владними повноваженнями у світі. Президент, як сказано в Конституції, повинен „забезпечувати точне виконання законів”. Задля здійснення цього відповідального обов‘язку він очолює виконавчу гілку федерального уряду – величезну організацію чисельністю близько 4 мільйонів осіб включно з 1 мільйоном військових дійсної служби. Крім того, Президент наділений важливими законодавчими та судовими повноваженнями.

У межах виконавчої гілки влади Президент має широкі повноваження щодо управління загальнодержавними справами й роботою федерального уряду.

Незважаючи на конституційне положення про те, що „всі повноваження законодавчої влади” мають бути надані Конгресові, Президент як головний творець державної політики відіграє вельми важливу законодавчу роль. Президент може накласти вето на будь-який законопроект, схвалений Конгресом, і, якщо дві третини кожної з палат не проголосують за скасування цього вето, законопроект не стане законом.

До судових повноважень Президента належить призначення федеральних суддів, оголошення повної або часткової амністії засудженому за порушення федерального закону, скорочення строків ув‘язнення та зменшення штрафів.
