Deficiencies and New Dimensions of Political Responsibility : Elements of Comparative Politics

The assessment of the use of resignation, electoral sanction and the procedures
of accountability of rulers in criminal cases is an excellent indicator of the management of their political responsibility. In France,
Italy, Spain and the United States, political responsibility, led astray
from its finality, finds itself in dangerous competition with criminal responsibility.
Such an evolution, prejudicial to the separation of powers,
is likely, in the long run, to weaken the main political institutions. In
view of the deficiencies of political responsibility, and given the fact that
the ballot is not sufficient to grant legitimacy to the rulers, new dimensions
of responsibility are being invented which go beyond its institutional
and judicial characteristics.
