executive body (P208)[edit]

does it not the same ?--Avatar6 (talk) 04:00, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Executive body looks to be about executive branch of government of a particular state, not a generic authority of a particular area. I.e. Executive body is more specifically about countries. --Vanuan (talk) 22:21, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
From the second look, indeed, they look very similar. --Vanuan (talk) 22:23, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
