Responsible Government vs Representative Government – Differences

Difference Between Responsible and Representative Government

Difference Between Responsible and Representative Government

The difference between representative government and responsible governments depends on the nature of the legislature and the relationship between it and the executive. If the legislature is elected by the people, the system of government is representative and this is the ordinary system in all democracies, except in one-party states. In one party states where there is only one officially-recognized political party, there is no real choice between candidates and programmes.
