The Meaning of Centralization of Power

Centralization is that type of government in which power is concentrated in a single authority. In such a system, only one authority is recognized in the whole country. Thus, power is usually vested with the central authority. The degree of centralization is highest in a unitary state. Examples of unitary states are Britain, France, Ghana, etc.

 

Merits of Centralization of Power

The following are the merits of centralization of power:

  1. Reduced cost of operation: The cost for running a centralized system is quite lower than that of a decentralized administration. This is because it is void of duplication of roles.
  2. Reduced conflict: Since where there is multiplicity of power, there is bound to be conflict, the reverse is the case in a centralized system.
  3. Even development: Due to the fact that there is uniformity of administration, there is room for increased even development.
