Accountable political parties .....

Political parties have become autocratic. They are personalized fiefdoms of the 'leaders'. There are no internal democratic norms, nor is there any transparency in funding and accountability in actions.

A party is different from any other organisation, since it seeks political power. Therefore it should be accountable to the public. An undemocratic party cannot sustain a democratic polity.

Lok Satta advocates:

Democratization and accountability of political parties.

  • Membership: Membership to be open to all citizens with official membership rolls made public.
  • Leadership: Leaders to be elected and not nominated
  • Candidates: Candidates for elective office to be chosen democratically by members of the party.
  • Funding : Transparency in funding and utilization of party funds with mandatory disclosure and independent audit.
