The Executive-Legislative Interaction Patterns project monitors and organizes information on roll-call votes to take place in the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate since its first edition. These data are related to the composition of the Government Coalition, that is, to the distribution of ministerial folders by the different parties. This information is crucial for characterizing the functioning of Coalition Presidentialism. Such data, by their nature, demand constant updating. Moreover, with the unfolding of academic debate and the formulation of new hypotheses, new information needs to be added to the existing basis. Specifically, within this front of the research, data on budget execution and appointments to positions of trust should be incorporated.
