Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Polity - 2 - Question 22

In a parliamentary government, the key features are:

  • Executive emerges from the legislature: The executive branch, which includes the Prime Minister and the Cabinet, is drawn from the members of the legislative branch (parliament). This means that the executive is a part of the legislature and has its support.
  • Executive is responsible to the legislature: The executive is accountable to the parliament for its actions and decisions. This means that the executive must maintain the confidence of the majority of the members in the legislative house to stay in power. If the executive loses the support or confidence of the parliament, it must either resign or call for new elections.
  • Separation of powers is not strict: In a parliamentary government, the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches is not as strict as in a presidential system. The executive and legislative branches are interconnected, and their functions often overlap.
  • Head of government is different from the head of state: The head of government (Prime Minister) is different from the head of state (such as a monarch or president). The head of state has a largely ceremonial role and does not participate in the day-to-day functioning of the government.

In summary, the correct answer is C: the executive emerge from and is responsible to the legislature. This is because, in a parliamentary government, the executive branch is formed by members of the legislature and must maintain the confidence of the parliament to stay in power.
