Short Notes on Political Executive

Executive is that organ of the government which enforces (executes) the laws passed by the legislature and runs the administration according to those laws.

In its comprehensive sense, it stands for all those functionaries that run the administration. It includes Head of the State (President), Prime Minister and his Council of Ministers and all the civil servants.

In political science, however, the word 'Executive' is used in a narrow sense.

In this sense it means Head of the State, Prime Minister and his council of ministers for it is they who frame policies and make plans, conduct international relations and take major decisions.

In India, President, Prime Minister and Council of Ministers are included in it.
