Collective Responsibility is one of the principles in a parliamentary system of government which states that all members of the cabinet are accountable to the legislature for executive actions and policies.

The cabinet speaks with one voice and stands or falls together. A minister cannot oppose government policy, otherwise, the minister will resign.

Merits of Collective Responsibility:

(i) It makes the executive indirectly answerable to the people who are represented in the parliament by their own elected representative.

(ii) It promotes political stability.

(iii) It encourages efficiency due to collective action.

(iv) It does not encourage shifting of responsibility or blame by the ministers.
