    Greece is a unitary state based on a system of parliamentary representation. The powers of the state are separated into three branches to prevent their concentration in a single authority. Despite constitutional provisions to strengthen local administration (article 102), in 1994 power still rested largely with the central government. For the first time in October 1994, local elections included direct election of province governors (nomarchs). Until that time, governors had been appointees of the national government.
