Why do we need the second the in the sentence, I know it is a literal translation but it does not flow in English

Exactly! I missed this over and over again before realizing I had to put in the awkward second "the" to pass.

The sentence above appears to be about "government* in a parliamentary system: that is, the prime minister and the heads of major departments--about 100 people. Civil servants and the like work for the government but they aren't government themselves.
