Delegation of Policy Tasks from Politician to the Bureaucrat
Originally, the agenda setting is the task in legislature. However, we often see that the politician and the bureaucrat contend with this task cooperatively. This implies that the politician delegates a part of his tasks to the bureaucrat. Why does the politician delegate his tasks? Does the bureaucrat who is delegated the politician’s tasks make an effort sufficiently for the policy implementation?
