The Executive Branch is the branch of government that exercises authority in and holds responsibility for the governance of a state. The executive executes and enforces law.

In the United Stars of the Galaxies, the executive branch eliminated with exception of the office of The President as a result of the Union Government Reform of 5000, with this position being eliminated in the subsequent Union Government Reform of 5039. This was a culmination of a trend that started shortly after the Union was formed of reducing the influence and power of the Executive Branch while increasing that of The Assembly and the Union Citizens.  This trend was interrupted very few times the largest one during the Peace Hawk Movement, although the changes made at that time were quickly reversed.
