Independence and Political Accountability

Independence and Political Accountability | Governance & Development Policies | Scoop.it

Political accountability is a necessary condition for good governance. In simple terms, there is political accountability when a citizen can reward with re-election an incumbent that provides an efficient use of public funds. Similarly, political accountability exists when a citizen can punish by ousting from power an unsatisfactory incumbent. It is crucial to note that political accountability is the main incentive that a government has to fulfil the needs and demands of the population.

In order for incumbents to be held responsible, the citizens must know which areas of government are controlled by each incumbent. If responsibilities are not assigned in a clear way, a citizen can hardly turn her dissatisfaction into votes and the link between bad management and electoral punishment dramatically weakens.

Egypt made progress in democratic transition, Haddad tells EU

Egypt made progress in democratic transition, Haddad tells EU | Governance & Development Policies | Scoop.it

The separation of military and civilian powers, democratic presidential elections and the new constitution are milestones on path to democratic transformation, said President Morsi foreign policy advisor in Berlin.

 

President Mohamed Morsi’s foreign policy advisor Essam Haddad stated on Saturday that Egypt was keen on building its democratic institutions and fulfilling the revolution’s goals, in addition to forging a national dialogue without preconditions amongst all political factions.

 

Speaking in Berlin during a session allocated to the Arab Spring revolutions organised by the Trilateral Commission in the German parliament, Haddad expressed his appreciation for being chosen as the keynote speaker for the session.

He further expressed his appreciation at being granted the opportunity to present a “case study of the democratic transition in the Arab world and in Egypt as a specific case,” official state news agency MENA reported.

Haddad commented on the role of the military and the regime, asserting it was crucial that the clear division of powers and responsibilities would be realised for the creation of a truly civil state.

“In accordance with the civil democratic model, a relationship has been formulated based on respect between the elected civilian government and the military establishment whose performance was characterised by discipline and professional awareness,” Haddad asserted.

 

Haddad stressed that it has proved that the building of democratic institutions still is one of the most “pressing tasks at this stage in an attempt to establish a principle of good governance.”

He also shed light on what he stated was a challenge in combating corruption prevalent during the former regime—coupled with grave violations of human rights—which seeped into the different state institutions and was carried into the transitional period.
