Which statement BEST describes the purpose of the separation of powers in government?
The separation of powers was designed to provide the greatest amount of liberty to people.
It ensures that the president is separated from special interest groups who might try to corrupt him/her.
The separation of powers was a promise by kings to keep nobles from taking over the liberties of the people.
It was designed to keep the judiciary, legislative, and executive branches of government working against each other.
Separation of powers, therefore, refers to the division of government responsibilities into distinct branches to limit any one branch from exercising the core functions of another. The intent is to prevent the concentration of power and provide for checks and balances.
