Pre-requisite of democracy
As a strong believer of Democracy; I would like to invite some reflections on the pre requisites of democracy to ensure the virtual practice of people led system.
Follwoing are some questions that require strategic interventions to ensure the virtual practice of people power.
local government system to devolve power from central model of goverment to ditsrict based governance system with clear accountability and transparency systems.
emhance Literacy level?
measures to fight against Feudal system?
need drastic changes in the colonial beaucratic system in various part of world?
need to clarify the role and responsibilities of legislative assemblies?
no more involvement of legislatures in development work.?
In my point of view; democracy pass through three stages to reach an optimal level.
stage one is the initial stage we may call it primary stage to understand and start practicing democracy and second stage is the transitional stage where the governments start adopting the fundamentals of democracy and pave the way to reach at next step that is optimal level.
second stage is very crucial in many terms and it should not proceed more than ten years.
