In my opinion presidential system for our country as there would be only one person who would take care of the national issues while not giving due importance to self interests of the MPs. In our form of government there is no clear cut consensus among MPs and situation becomes messy at times which is in no manner helpful to our country.

Greeting to all friend as our India is a country of different culture, religion, language, etc we all together are staying happy and freely because of democracy if the all powers will transfer to single individual the there will not be possible to make all equally satisfied there may be chance that the single one will give priority to that group which belong to his or her so according to me presidential system in India will not be fruitful.

Like My other friend's had described upper.

I wanted to tell you is that, I felt very awful when someone said that India is corrupted and it just because of blunt politician, but is that true because that politic member is chosen by us. So just don't blame those lone. Just go through their career graph, and see what he does for us in that year of span, judge them with their good work and if we feel like so then only choose the person and see the difference. I know that person surely will take our country on a top position and we feel proud. That we had selected a Right person.

Somehow, I have come to dislike the word "diversity". We are culturally and religiously diverse, no doubt, but shouldn't we limit our culture and religion to our personal lives and not let it leak out into public life? (will appreciate your views). Moreover, nowadays the word is used by politicians for dividing the society rather than uniting it. We are united because we are all Indians. I strongly advocate for presidential system of government because at least then the executive will be free from legislature. Political interference is the biggest hindrance for policy implementation.

In the present system of government, the buck stops with the prime minister-"one man"-head of the government. I don't remember him favouring a select group of people. We just have to make sure that the president does not do it as well, if at all we get a presidential form of government.

We have to ask ourselves, "do we want an educated and trained executive to run our country's administration, or let a group of educated people supported by a host of uneducated fools, who are bent upon dividing us, run it?".

The current format is perfect for present scenario and so for the future. Our P.M. If works as P.M. of republic of India and people identify themselves as citizen then we will have a direct link with the followers and head of the institution. Considering the presidential form, powers in one hand will never be beneficial for the nation (if considered today's scenario) and what type of system the nation needs is already been written in the constitution. And will satisfying those who likes it and for those who thinks of change in the system, its a very long debate.

I think current form of the democracy is good for india, as mentioned any of my frnd above India is very much diverged country, there should be one leader to lead them.

And moreover India has the biggest constitution and provision to change the laws according to need of time. So its time to change our minds and use the available resources in the best way.

Instead of changing the type of democracy in India, it's better that each and every individual should contribute in eradicating corruption from the system. This will require awareness among people and until and unless we will not demand for change none of the system can help solving the problem. Our constitution is the largest in the world and the best part is that there are provisions for amendments. So I'll suggest that please actively take part in the government forming policy because after all it's your own India.

Guys, I believe that India should have a presidential form of government. The benefit of having a presidential form of government is that, the representative of the people i.e. the president will be chosen by indirect election. This will ensure that he/ she (representative) has a good educational qualification, does not have any criminal record and has to prove his ability before wielding power. Another benefit of having a presidential system is that India will remain free from party politics, which is very active in India.

At this point one may argue that, since is a diversified nation, the representative will not be able to represent the different sections of people. But then, why not? the different sections of people will be represented in the Lower House of the Parliament (Lok Sabha) and the different states of the Indian Union will be represented by the Rajya Sabha (Upper House of the Parliament).

The best example of Presidential system of Government is The USA. Today it is the most prosperous nation of the World. All credit goes to the Presidential System operating in the state.

I firmly adhere to the statement that India should have a Presidential form of government.

It does not really matter which form of democracy holds in India. The strength of our nation depends on the leaders who are elected. Instead of changing the system of democracy, it would be better if people stop being selfish and elect someone who would actually work for the country.

We all till now have tasted the present political system and know that something is needed to be changed or modified for a better future.

What happening is we just put our faith on a leader and select a MP (Sometimes we don't even have our faith in that MP) and now our leader is directly selected by those MP's, now at this instant our role is over and all the decisions are taken by MP's and they now sometimes ask our leader for a special position or benefits for continuing their support and sometimes get sold ! so this system is actually weakening our leader and he can't take good decision rather than he got tangled only in politics.

What if we are able to directly select our leader and then he will setup the system towards development and this is possible if we switch to presidential politics.
