Why did MDP fail?
MDP without a doubt was one main reason for the multi party democracy that we see in this country. It is very difficult for me as a person to believe that this system would have come to us just like that without the kind of pressure that MDP or rather its members put on then the government. Where is MDP now? Why were they defeated not just in presidential election, but rather all the last 3 elections? Here are various things I feel that went wrong within their system, especially during the 3 years in power. Before that, let me make it clear. Some would argue that government was toppled by a coup. Coup or Not, is not what interests me here. The hard to accept fact remains and will always remain that, if one tries a coup and it goes well, surely that success would be the result of some wrong things on the other side too. With this assumption I will move ahead and will try to focus on areas where they had control. 1 Civil Service Pay - A deduction of civil servants salary wa
