This paper reviews the place of executive power within the Commonwealth Constitution in light of historical and recent developments. It summarises, in particular, the scope of executive power and the extent to which it is informed and constrained by its federal constitutional setting. It also considers the role of the traditional prerogatives of the Crown in defining the content of executive power, and of non-statutory executive power generally, and executive power under the constitutions of the various States.
