Correct Answer - Option 3 : a group of people responsible for implementing laws and running the government
The organ of government that primarily looks after the function of implementation and administration is called the executive.
The second but most powerful organ of the government is the Executive.
It is that organ that implements the laws passed by the legislature and the policies of the government.
At the State level, the executive comprises the Governor and the Chief Minister and the Council of Ministers.
Thus, we can conclude that the executive organ of the State refers to a group of people responsible for implementing laws and running the government.
- The executive is often involved in the framing of policy.
- The executive branch is not just about presidents, prime ministers and ministers.
- It also extends to the administrative machinery (civil servants).
- While the heads of government and their ministers, saddled with the overall responsibility of government policy, are together known as the political executive, those responsible for the day to day administration are called the permanent executive.
