New Zealand is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy ,  although its constitution is not codified .  Elizabeth II is the Queen of New Zealand and the head of state .  The Queen is represented by the Governor-General , whom she appoints on the advice of the Prime Minister .  The Governor-General can exercise the Crown's prerogative powers , such as reviewing cases of injustice and making appointments of ministers , ambassadors and other key public officials,  and in rare situations, the reserve powers (. the power to dissolve Parliament or refuse the Royal Assent of a bill into law).  The powers of the Queen and the Governor-General are limited by constitutional constraints and they cannot normally be exercised without the advice of ministers.
