I don't know if it is an improvement on the Singapore government, but your system has far too much power for the presidency. In many countries this would be described as violating the principle of separation of powers. The Senate may have to try to impeach every President, but with the executive and legislative powers in his hands, they may find themselves checkmated, unable to take action against him (or her) and the country may become a dictatorship!
By the way, the flowchart (image) did not show up, but all the rest of the page was there.
