The co-princes appoint a cap de govern (prime minister) on the recommendation of the Consell General, then the prime minister appoints a cabinet, to form the executive.
The legal system is based on the French and Spanish civil codes, with an independent judiciary under the 1993 constitution. Andorra is a business-friendly jurisdiction, but legal processes may become somewhat complex at higher court levels.
