The presidential system is a type of democratic government that can benefit much of mankind. It balances powers in a way that lets government be robust, but not autocratic.This alleviates many of the problems associated with corruption, inefficient governance and lack of minority representation. Unless governance around the world improves, all efforts toward democratic nation-building will go to waste.
The Presidential form was invented by the founders of the United States as a remedy for the British-style Parliamentary system, previously considered the world’s best democratic government. The U.S. system is simple but not well understood. Other nations have often adopted it,but in name only.
This website publishes credible information written by experienced policy experts about the Presidential system, so that it may become more fully understood. Our current focus is on the system’s suitability for modern India.
