The question was popular with the candidates but poorly answered by them. Majority of those that attempted it failed to explain enough points in detail to score very high marks.
Few other candidates completely missed the requirements of the question. Instead, they wrote on the features of parliamentary system of government which led to loss of marks.
The overall performance in the question was a little below average. Some of the points candidates failed to identify included:
- nominates ministers from parliament and allocates portfolios to them;
- reshuffles cabinet;
- dismisses ministers when the need arises;
- conducts international relations;
- presides over cabinet meetings, etc.
