The Importance Of Checks And Balances In Democratic Governance


Must Read

The lack of confirmation of the appointment made by the President to the office of Ombudsman is being interpreted in many ways.

This development simply confirms that the principle of the separation of powers is applicable in the Gambia.

The importance of the principle is to promote efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency in managing the affairs of a state. It prevents errors being made and enhances respect for the rule of law.

Instead of being burdened by a sense of frustration a genuinely democratic government must embrace the principle of the separation of powers so that it would safeguard the governance process from maladministration.
