Zeliang Government sliding back

The general publics in Nagaland had not thought that they would enjoy a better living condition and see better governance when TR Zeliang took over as new chief minister (CM) of the state from Neiphiu Rio, who became the lone Nagaland Member of Parliament, on May 24 this year. There was no jubilation among the large sections of the people in Nagaland either when such change of guard took place.

Timing is Everything: A Look at the Executive Presidency

There has been a great deal of discussion in Sri Lanka recently about abolishing the Executive Presidency. When the new constitution was adopted during the presidency of J. R. Jayawardane, it created the Provincial System of governance and the position of the Executive President; both have their inherent merits and flaws, many of which have been revealed as we have lived with the new system over time. Most people agree that many aspects of our current system need to be reviewed and ultimately fixed, but I contend that the fixing can only be done at the right time. This is simply the way life works: to attempt a fix at the wrong time – even if it is for the right reasons – will only produce wrong results.
