Describe the way in which power can be shared among governments at different levels.
Ans. Power sharing is a strategy, wherein all the major segments of society are provided with a permanent share of power in the governance of the country.
Power is shared among different organs of government, such as the Legislature, Executive and Judiciary. •
None of these organs can exercise unlimited power as each organ checks the others. In a federal form of government, power can be divided between the Central Government and the State Government as well as at the Local Government level. Power may be shared among different social groups, such as religious and linguistic groups. Power sharing arrangements can also be seen in the way political parties, pressure groups and social movements control or influence those in power.
