Parliamentary system for Afghanistan

Posted in Afghanistan Constitution by mrkooenglish on June 29, 2008

Amin Saikal and William Maley suggest that parliamentary system is better than presidential system for Afghanistan:

Given its history of weak state structures in ever-changing relationships with tight-knit tribal and ethnic societies, Afghanistan would be far better served by a more inclusive parliamentary system of government. This would mean a ceremonial rather than an executive president, a prime minister and other cabinet members drawn from the upper and lower houses of Parliament, and stronger local and regional governments that would make ordinary Afghans feel connected to the political system.
