Abstract

In the conditions of intensification of economic, political and social processes of the modern world, political and economic reform in the state, scientists and government officials are forced to look for new optimal forms of government. At the same time, improperly regulated legal relations lead to the actual concentration of state power in the hands of a narrow circle of persons who are not authorized by either the people or the current government and have only technological functions for drafting regulations. Such a situation objectively needs its legal regulation and settlement.

The aim of the article is to study the important trend of strengthening the role of the state apparatus as a reality that has objectively developed in the modern system of government. Therefore, in the article the author on numerous examples shows the ever-increasing influence of the state apparatus on the development and decision-making in the field of public administration.

The scientific novelty of the article lies in a critical understanding of the phenomenology of strengthening the power of the apparatus of executive bodies in the modern realities of state life. The activity of this layer of the power structure, which is in fact not subject to control by society, public organizations and parliaments, is considered dangerous by the author. The paper also analyzes the causes of this phenomenon in different countries.

Conclusions. The activity of the executive branch is an infinite number of constitutional powers exercised by it, which legally and in fact belong to it. The scope of these powers is objectively steadily and permanently growing, complementing each other. In this situation, the avant-garde role of the executive is not in doubt. However, such a role objectively requires its own theoretical justification, proper constitutional and legislative consolidation and a reasonable increase in the role of the apparatus of this branch of the unified state power. Society needs to know how and on what basis decisions are made that significantly affect the daily lives of people, society and the state.
