In Parliamentary Government, Ministers remain in office so long as they enjoy ______________.


ANSWER

confidence of the members of lower house of parliament


SOLUTION
Article 75(2) provides that the Ministers shall hold office during the pleasure of the President. The Council of Ministers is collectively responsible to Lok Sabha. It means that if the Ministry loses the confidence of the "Lok Sabha", all ministers including those who are from Rajya Sabha have to go. The entire ministry is obliged to resign. Thus, in Parliamentary government ministers remain in office so long as they enjoy conference of the members of the lower house of parliament.
