shall be construed as referring to the Head of the Commonwealth acting with the advice of the

.
(a). Responsible Government;
The system called Responsible Government is based on the notion that the Head Of The Commonwealth can him or herself do no wrong, that he does not do any act of State of his own motion, but follows the advice of his ministers, on whom the responsibility for acts done, in order to give effect to their volition (will), naturally falls. They are therefore called Responsible Ministers. If they do wrong, they can be punished or dismissed from office without effecting any change in the Head ship of the State.
Revolution is therefore no longer a necessary possibility; for a change of Ministers effects peacefully the desired result.
.
The present form of development of Responsible Government is that, when the branch of the Legislature which more immediately represents the people disapproves of the actions of Ministers, or ceases to have confidence in them, the Head of the Commonwealth dismisses them, or accepts their resignation, and appoints new ones. The effect is that the actual government of the Commonwealth is conducted by officers who enjoy the confidence of the people.
.
(b). Citizen Initiated Referendum subject to section 129;
The Australian Living Souls will from this day forth and for all times to come have the right to consult a member of the Executive Council to direct the Head of the Commonwealth to hold a referendum on an issue which is of great concern to them.

Certain Powers of Governors to vest in Governor General.
ln respect of matters which, under this Constitution, pass to the Executive Government of the Commonwealth (283), powers and functions which at the establishment of the Commonwealth are vested in  
the Governor of a Colony, or in the Governor of a Colony with the advice of his Executive Council, or in any authority of a Colony (284), shall vest in the Head of the Commonwealth, or
in the Head of the Commonwealth in Council or in the authority exercising similar powers (285) under the Commonwealth, as the case requires.
.
Garran Commentaries on the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution
(a). Quick and Garran Note 283. "Matters Which .. Pass to the .. Commonwealth."
Among the matters which, under this Constitution, pass to the Executive Government of the Commonwealth are;
(1) from the establishment of the Commonwealth, the administration of the departments of customs and excise (sec. 69); the collection and control of duties of customs and excise, and the control of the payment of bounties; the control of officers and the appointment and removal of officers connected with those departments (secs. 67, 84, and 86).
.
(2) from and after dates to be proclaimed subsequently to the establishment of the Commonwealth the administration of other departments of the public service of each State, which become transferred to the Commonwealth, and the control, appointment, and removal of all officers connected therewith (secs. 69 and 84).
(b). ln respect of such matters, from the moment when they are transferred to the Executive Government of the Commonwealth, all powers and functions which at the establishment of the Commonwealth are vested in the Governor of a colony vest in the Governor General of the Commonwealth; all powers and functions which are then vested in the Governor of a colony with the advice of his Executive Council vest in the Governor General in Council; and all powers and functions which are then vested in any authority of a colony vest in the authority exercising similar powers under the Commonwealth.
.
(c). Quick and Garran Note 284, "Or in any Authority of a Colony."
ln connection with the public service of each colony there may be local authorities, boards or
commissions which are endowed with special powers and functions. When a public department is
transferred to the Commonwealth it is placed beyond the jurisdiction of such local authorities, boards, and commissions, and becomes subject to the exclusive control of the Federal Executive. ln such cases the powers and functions, formerly exercised in respect to the department by the local authority, vest either in the Governor General or in the Governor General in Council, until Federal legislation creates a Federal authority to exercise similar powers and functions under the Commonwealth.

(d). Quick and Garran Note 285.
In the Authority Exercising Similar Powers
Of the administrative powers and functions which, under the Constitution, pass to the Federal Executive Government, some were previously vested in the Governors of the Colonies, some in the Governors of the Colonies with the advice of their respective Executive Councils, and some in local authorities within the Colonies appointed by law. Those described as vested in the Governors belong, technically, to the prerogatives of the Crown; those described as vested in the Governors with the advice of their respective Executive Councils, are dependent on statute law; those described as vested in "any authority of a Colony" were founded on statute and by statute were vested in Ministers, local boards, bodies, commissions, or officers. Thus in connection with the department of lighthouses, light-ships, beacons, and buoys, certain powers and functions have been, under the Colonial system, generally assigned to marine boards; so in connection with the quarantine department certain powers and functions have been exercised by Boards of Health.
.
Now, the intention of this section is that on the transfer to the Federal Executive Government of matters involving the exercise of Executive powers and functions, those powers and functions which in the pre-federal period were, by express terms, vested in the Colonial Governors, shall under the Federal regime and by express terms be vested in the Governor General; that, likewise, those Executive powers and functions which were vested in the Colonial Governors with the advice of their respective Executive Councils shall, by express terms, be vested in the Governor General in Council; and lastly, that those Executive powers and functions which were formerly vested in local authorities shall be vested in some Federal Authority, exercising similar powers under the Commonwealth.
.
(e). The difference between transferred powers and functions vested in the Governor General, and transferred powers and functions vested in the Governor General in Council, is purely an historical one and not one of substance, and all such powers and functions will be exercised by the Governor-General through Ministers having the confidence of the Federal Parliament.
.
(f). The substantive meaning of this section (which is adapted from section 12 of the British North America Act, section 70 c) is that executive functions which were formerly exercised in relation to the separate colonies, but which are now to be exercised in relation to the Federal Government, are vested in some Federal officer or authority corresponding to the provincial officer or authority in whom they were formerly vested.
.
(g). The section is intended to facilitate the proper performance of duties in connection with transferred departments, before those duties have been regulated by federal law.
After the transfer, the exclusive legislative power in respect of those departments belongs to the Federal Parliament; but until the Federal Parliament acts in pursuance of its exclusive power, the departments will be administered in accordance with the provisions of this section.
lt does not appear to interfere in any way with the discretion of the Federal Parliament to afterwards assign any of these duties to what officers it pleases. lt declares that all these powers and functions "shall vest" in the corresponding department, officer, or authority, but it does not declare that they shall continue to be so vested; and to construe the vesting as permanent would introduce a conflict with sec. 61, which declares that the executive power of the Commonwealth is vested in the Queen, and exercisable by the Governor General as the Queen's Representative.
