Answer the question briefly.
Explain three differences between parliamentary and presidential forms of government.
Following are the differences between Parliamentary and Presidential forms of governments:
- In the Parliamentary system of government, there is a harmonious relationship between the legislative and executive bodies, whereas the functioning of the judiciary is independent. However, in a Presidential form of government, the three organs of the government, i.e. executive, legislative and judiciary work independently of each other.
- In a Parliamentary form of government, the executive power is divided into two parts, viz., the Head of the State (President) and the Head of the Government (Prime Minister). However, in a Presidential form of Govern¬ment, the President is the chief executive.
- In a Parliamentary form of government, the executive body, i.e., the Council of Minis¬ters are accountable to the Parliament. However, there is no such accountability in the Presidential form of Government, i.e., the executive body is not accountable to the Parliament for its acts.
