Question:

So you are saying that sharing of power makes us more powerful. Sounds odd!Let me think.

Answer:

Yes, sharing of power makes us more powerful. But in fact it strengthens and creates a unity between the institutions involved. It may appear to be insensible as sharing means dividing and dividing means weakening.

Advantages of power sharing are:.

  • It is very effective in the long run as chances of disputes and conflicts among majority and minority is lowered.
  • It maintains stability in the political order by balancing power distribution.
  • It ensures democracy in a country as powers are distributed.
  • It reduces conflicts between diverse social groups and communities.
  • It helps in maintaining a balance of power between the different organs of the government and reduces concentration of power in single organ or body.
