The above question seeks to assess your argumentation capacity and your interpretation of the national policy. For that reason, I can't write the argument for you, but I'll show you how to write one.

First, you must analyze how the role of the President of the Republic has changed over the years and how these changes have modified the power the President has in the country.

During this research, you must decide if, in your opinion, the president has very strong powers that are dangerous to society.

You should do this based on the documents indicated in the question and based on articles dealing with this subject.

Based on that, you can write your argument as follows:

  • Enter the subject you want to present.
  • Show your argument, that is, your opinion on this subject.
  • Present evidence, taken from the documents and articles you have read, that proves that your argument is correct and true.
  • Show an argument contrary to yours.
  • Present evidence, which proves that this argument is incorrect.
  • Finish the text by reinforcing your argument.
