One Nation, One Election

#GS2 #GOVERNANCE

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on pitched for ‘One Nation, One Election’, saying it is the need of the country as elections taking place every few months hamper development works.

  • There should be a single voter list for all polls in the country.
  • ‘One Nation, One Election’ isn’t just an issue of deliberation but also a need of the country. 
  • Elections are held at different places every few months and it hampers the developmental work. 
  • Emphasizing the need for coordination between all three wings of the state - legislature, executive and judiciary - everything, from their role to their decorum, was described in the Constitution itself.
  • In the 1970s, we saw how there was an attempt to breach the dignity of separation of power, but the country got the answer only from the Constitution. 
  • After that period of Emergency, the system of checks and balances became stronger and stronger. 
  • The legislature, the executive and the judiciary, all three, learned a lot from that period and moved forward.
