Question:

Suggest some reforms to strengthen parties so that they perform their functions well?

Answer:

It should be made compulsory for political parties to maintain a register of its members and follow its own constitution. Political parties should have an independent authority, to act as a judge in case of party disputes. It should have open elections to the highest posts.
It should be made mandatory for political parties to give a minimum number of tickets, about one-third, to women candidates. Similarly, there should be a quota for women in the decision making bodies of the party.
There should be state funding of elections. The government should give parties money to support their election expenses. This support could be given in kind: petrol, paper, telephone etc. Or it could be given in cash on the basis of the votes secured by the party in the last election.
These reforms will strengthen parties and their performance will improve.
