 What are the demerits (disadvantages) of electoral competition?


saurav.ghosh , Meritnation Expert added an answer, on 23/12/11

The following are certain demerits of electoral competition:

  • It creates disunity and factionalism

  • Candidates often use dirty tricks to discredit their opponents and win elections

  • Long term policies may become a casualty of electoral politics

  • Money power is often a crucial determinant of results in elections and smaller and independent candidates may not have sufficient resources to compete with big parties on equal terms
