The United States Constitution has a formal Separation of Powers that divides government into three branches, giving each branch checks and balances on the others to prevent one from becoming too powerful. For example, the legislative branch can impeach the executive branch in the event of wrongdoing.What are some examples of checks and balances?
In addition to division of powers, each branch of government is given power to check up on, and even veto or disapprove decisions or actions of, another branch of government. As an example of checks and balances in government, the President may veto a law passed by Congress.
