"Does the executive dominate decision-making in the Australian parliamentary system?"

Thanks for your question. The Australian Constitution defines the three groups who have the power to make and manage federal law in Australia: the Parliament, the Executive and the Judiciary. This is known as the separation of powers. The executive government includes the Prime Minister and ministers and they have the power to put law into action. While most bills (proposed laws) are introduced by the Government, only the Australian Parliament has the power to make laws for Australia.
