|The Constitution provides for the: (i) Legislature to make laws, (ii) Executive to implement laws, and (iii) Judiciary to interpret and enforce these laws. While the Judiciary is independent from the other two branches, the Executive (Council of Ministers) is formed with the support of a majority of members in the Legislature. Therefore, the Executive is collectively responsible to Parliament for its actions. This implies that Parliament can hold the government accountable for its decisions, and scrutinise its functioning.
