“Very often political parties do not seam to offer meaningful choice to voters”. Support the statement with examples.
In order to offer meaningful choice, parties must be significantly different. In recent years, there has been a decline in the ideological differences among parties in most parts of the world.
- For example: The differences between the Labour Party and the Conservative Party in Britain is very little. They agree on more fundamental aspects but differ only in details on how policies are to be framed and implemented.
- In our country too, the difference among all the major parties on the economic policies have reduced.
- Those who want really different policies have no option available to them. Sometimes citizens who want to elect different leaders are left with no choice because the same set of leaders keep shifting from one party to another.
