Separation of Powers in the Arms of Government

Meaning of Separation of Powers

Separation of powers is a principle in government which is defined as the division of governmental political powers that exist in any given states into three organs of government. What the principle is saying is that all the amount of governmental political powers that exist in a given state should not be rested or consolidated in one person or one organ of government. If these powers are divided into three organs of government – the legislature, executive and judiciary, that the chances of dictatorship or tyranny will be reduced.
