The transmission of power
I am not a politician, but I did make a contribution to the process in the 2011 election which helped to create a parliament in which the win only attitude of the ruling party came to an end.
Before the 2011 elections, the ruling party with its majority always showed respect to the parliamentary procedures and accepted its decision. The combined opposition did the same.
However, the 2011 election results brought a change of power giving the combined opposition an opportunity to be heard and respected. This God-given transition to my mind, cleared the way for the win- win solution to be utilized.
The cutting of the budget could have been avoided had the ruling party taken the transition of power seriously and give the combined opposition the intellectual respect deserved through accepting the inclusive suggestions at the beginning of the process.
But the nature of the ruling party with its win only attitude for so long took the combined opposition for granted and suffered its just budget defeat after so many years of success.
Having been convinced of the changes in the Tenth parliament, the ruling party decided to use the consent for its continuation of the only attitude.
For this reason, I shall quote the words said a few years ago with USA by Senator Fulbright, a democrat and Lawyer by profession.
There is going to be a terrible backlash through the Supreme Court. You can’t change society too much through the courts.
Most of it has to come through the political system, even of it takes longer, it is more likely to stick.
