    president is the head of the state, the chief implementing or executive officer.
    vice president assumes the position of the president if he or she dies, becomes incapacitated, resigns or gets impeached/removed from office. also the vice-pres may concurrently hold a cabinet position
    a senator proposes and legislates a law; in layman, he makes the law. also a congressman does what a senator do. the only difference between them is that the senator is in the upper house and the congressman is in the lower house.
    a municipal mayor is the local chief executive officer of a town or municipality. he or she is under the supervision of the president.
