why do we need a parliament

Need for Parliament arises due to the following reasons:

  • It is a legislative organ of the government.
  • It helps in the law making process and also introduces new laws from time to time.
  • It keeps financial control over the government’s income, i.e. the government cannot spend public’s money with the consent of the Parliament.
  • It controls the executive organ of the government. This means that the organ needs mandate from the Parliament to function.
  • It also is an organ of information.
