Title:The meaning and scope of executive power in Ghana today
Author:Daniels, W.C. Ekow
Periodical:University of Ghana Law Journal
Geographic term:Ghana
Subject:executive power
Abstract:The Executive power of the State since Ghana attained her independence has resided in a variety of persons under different constitutional regimes. The government of the present military regime defies description in the sense which is understood by an orthodox constitutional lawyer. The highest governmental body is the National Redemption Council which is vested with authority to exercise such power for such purposes as it may think fit and to issue Decrees which shall have the force of law. It is headed by a Chairman in whom the executive power of the state vests. The government is administered in accordance with the laws previously in force unless revoked or amended by the Decrees of the N.R.C. Sections: Meaning of 'Executive Authority' In whom is the Executive Authority vested? Manner of exercise of executive power Agents of the Executive (The National Redemption Council; The Executive Council; The Departments of State: Public Service) - Conclusion. Notes; ref.
