This chapter considers the ways in which presidents deploy legislative powers in coalition management. It covers decree and statute powers, and at least three types of veto powers: package, partial, and amendatory. It discusses the impact of a variety of system-level factors (electoral and party system), coalition-level factors (presidential party size and ideological composition), and conjunctural factors (crisis and time) on the relative cost of the deployment of legislative tools. It examines case studies from Ukraine, Chile, Russia, Benin, and Brazil to highlight different types of legislative tool deployment. It also uses MP survey evidence to assess the relative importance of legislative powers in coalition maintenance, and to discuss the propensity of legislators to delegate their legislative powers to presidents.

Keywords:   decrees, vetoes, Benin, Brazil, Chile, Russia, Ukraine, elections, legislatures, presidents
