ELECTIONS & ELECTIONEERING IN INDIA


Further, our Electoral system is so defective that it would require many more reforms to make it egalitarian, near perfect and almost fool-proof, such as 1.'None found suitable' provision in the EVMs, (Popularly known as "Right to Reject) 2.Provision for recall of non-performing or corrupt MP, MLA, (Popularly known as "Right to Recall non-performing or corrupt legislators) 3. Taxing criteria for the selection of the correct candidates such as a mandatory minimum experience of military, para-military or social service etc. etc., (Popularly known as "Right to Informed Selection). This would enable electorate to chose their representative out of a few most deserving candidates for the exalted positions.

In the ultimate analysis, it is the quality of the candidates fielded that would reflect upon the quality of the people's chosen representatives. This in turn would determine the quality of the democracy we practice. And the corruption-free democracy is sure to accelerate our growth and progress many times over.
