Mine doesn't seem to work either - could be due to the updates on VN.

I've actually got a question this time.

I'm a bit confused as to what an "executive government" is and what it does?.. my textbook doesn't explain it clearly. I know it has something to do with the "Separation of Powers" - but that's all I know.

If anyone could help, that would be great and I'll give you +karma! =D

Do you mean executive power? Executive power is part of the separation of powers...
I'm not sure about executive government though :/

Since, I can't post up the question! :@

It's basically a table you have to fill in, it says "Suggest the differences and similarities between the Commonwealth and Victorian Parliament for each feature listed." It has Upper house, Lower house, Crown and then "Executive government." ... I have no idea. =\

Mistake in the textbook? It could be another word for Executive Council...

Is there an explanation in the text book of 'executive government'?
If so, type it here... it might just be a different name for executive council?!
I don't know!

It only has the definition of "Executive Council" in the glossary. It probably is "Executive Council" by any chance. Thank you for the help anyhow! xD

I'll karma you, since no one else bothered to help. =D

In that case, how is the Executive Council similar and different in the Commonwealth and Victorian Parliament?.. my textbook is not that good.

They both make delegated legislation.
In the Commonwealth the governor-general is part of the executive council. In Victoria it is the governor...
Thats all i can think of!

It reads in my textbook - "The Commonwealth Constitution provides for a Commonwealth Executive Council. The governor-general acts on the advice given by this Executive Council. It consists of the ministers of state and the governor-general."

The only difference I can see, is what you've said - the Commonwealth Executive Council has a governor-general, while the Victorian Executive Council has a governor.

from what i know of this year, by executive government they meen who makes up the governement at each level, so at federal it would be the prime minister and senior ministers and at the state level it is the premier and senior ministers.  the members of the executive make government policy and, thorugh individual ministers, control government departments :)
hope this helps
