Sedona AZ (December 1, 2017) – Can a major country exist for over 1,000 years without a written constitution? Is it possible for its chief executive to serve without a fixed term of office? Can a democracy function with a short election period and virtually no private political campaign contributions?
Discover the differences and similarities between a parliamentary and presidential democracy as Angela LeFevre and Jim Molans present a philosophical overview of the British and American political systems at a forum hosted by the League of Women Voters Greater Verde Valley on Thursday, December 7, 6PM-7:30PM at the Sedona Library, 3250 White Bear Rd, Sedona. The program, which is free and open to the public, is part of the bi-monthly Philosophy & Politics series presented by the League.
