GOVERNMENT OF HARRAWI
Officially, Harrawi has been a democratic country since 2002. The government, lead by a prime minister, is appointed and sacked directly by the 71 member parliament (the Chamber of Deputies or esh'Eshaa Eengatare in Harrawi). The office of president is purely ceremonial. He too is appointed by parliament for a six year term, which is twice renewable. In 2015, Hupilulyum Yepreshias was appointed as the third president of Harrawi. The government has been chaired by prime minister Ashon Pary (OID) since April 2013.

From 2002 to 2011, parliament was chaired by Maamus Abdurashiabon, who could be considered the most powerful person in Harrawi at that time. His death in August 2011 left an important vacancy and it was only in November that parliament was able to elect his successor. Some sort of power struggle has been going on between the parliament and the government since Abdurashiabon's death. The current chairman is Aames Sanoraabon (IS), who was elected in August 2012.

Elections of the Yeshaa Eengatare
Before 2002, Harrawi politics were dominated by the Sultan's party Isb Rashyaa (IR); although other parties were allowed, governments of non-IR signatures were often toppled if their policies weren't in line with those of the IR. Since the 2002 revolution, parliamentary elections take place every four years. The last one occurred on 20 March 2015 and the next one will therefore take place not later than 22 March 2019. The elections are often considered a mere formality, because the political parties overlap mostly with the country's division in clans; therefore, the results of subsequent parliamentary elections are more or less the same. Government coalitions may change within a parliamentary period.

Currently ten political parties are represented in the Yeshaa Eengatare since 2003: the Onsery Isb Demukratyaa (OID, First Democratic Party; Wary-clan), the Isb Akshana a Ashula (IAA, Party for Development and Prosperity; linked to the Isun-clan), the New Isb Demukratyaa (NID, New Democratic Party; Libinay-clan), Isb e'Saag (IS, Saag-Party and -clan), Isb sh'Nassaa Harraay (INH, Party for the People of Harrawi; Uryupulaa-clan), Isb esh'Kuumeen (IK, Kuumeen-Party and -clan), Isb esh'Aruunn (IH, Harunn-Party and -clan), the Aglyawa Slamyawa (AS, Islamic Values; linked with no clan), the Sikanish Apiriyatily Harrawia (SAH, Political Initiative for Harrawi; linked with no clan), and the Isb esh'Eragyaau (IY, Yeragyau-Party and -clan).

Foreign relations
Foreign politics of Harrawi since the independence have been largely neutral, although the country has some clear opinions about some issues. The Harrawi government doesn't for instance recognise Israel, but doesn't favour Iran either. During the war between Iraw and Iran in the eighties, Harrawi didn't choose sides, but the Iraqi invasion in Kuwait in the nineties was sharply condemned by Oryaa. Harrawi never participated in combined military operations in the Middle-East and (officially) didn't involve itself in the Somalian civil wars or the independence war of Eritrea against Ethiopia. In the eighties Harrawi did some business with South-Yemen, through which country Harrawi got some military equipment from the Soviet Union in order to build an army, a navy and an airforce. Currently, Harrawi is a member of the African Union, the OPEC, the Exumbran Convention, and FICT.

Harrawi has a mixed relation with the West. Most Harrawi watch America with some suspicion, but the British rule until 1978 on the other hand wasn't really experienced as a bad thing. Since 2003, Harrawi tries to participate in the battle against terrorism, and alleged members of Al-Qaida are arrested frequently. Independent parties, such Amnesty International, have some objections against the credibility of this, but since Harrawi has a relatively mild penal system in comparison to some other countries in the region, the country isn't rapped over the knuckles very often.
