Current System (parliamentary):

- instability is very common

- this system created the cause of "nirankusta"

- wasn't able to represent dalits and other groups (not representative)


Directly elected president:

- fear of dictatorship

- But we can still put check in balances


Mixed System:

- Sharing between Prime-minister (nominated by parliament) & President (elected directly)
