People need better political awareness

The National, Monday 12th December 2011

I DO agree with some people that the current government should stay for the sake of political stabi­lity.
At least there are some signs of better governance.
This is where major political awareness is needed.
I believe the media could do more in pointing out how a constitutional democracy works.
For people to make informed choices and decisions, they should be made aware of the current political situation.
To me, the concern is the integrity of the Constitution.
Any government can make amendments to the Constitution and claim it is done for the sake of the people.
The concern is whether there is going to be a precedent set.
In democratic countries, the main stay of good governance and political stability is the Constitution is not tampered with by leaders for their own political ambitions.
