Vietnam is holding elections in single party system. In India, we have multi party system but there is move to chan ge to Congress Mukta Bharat- which would make us also a single party democracy.  So it appears that there are many types of democracies. Multi party, three party, two party, single party.  India was also for many decades after independence virtually single party democracy under congress. 

In Vietnam, the voters will be exercising their rights. But the candidates will be only from one party and independents. Is this one party system democracy?

    India never have single party democracy. Congress mukt Bhart in impossible. In earlier days of independence congress is major party and oppoisiong like Jan Sangh, communist and sociallist are few but they were much active and effective. Remember Ram Manohar Lohia, Zorg Farnadise.

    Although there was a name here and there in other parties for all practical purpose from Independence until 1977 India was more or less not just single party but single family owned democracy. Janata Party came into power and after that other parties became more prominent. ..

    That Congress has become a single Family ruled Democracy is undeniable. Surprisingly, still Congress is trying to  bring back that undesirable Family ruled tradition. Thanks to Modi for destroying that tradition.

    Now with most parties being edged out by the Election commission since none of them have the required number of seats in the lok Sabha .  According to the criteria set by the poll panel, a 'national party' needs to get at least 6% votes each from minimum four states, or get 2% of total seats in the Lok Sabha from at least three states, or it should be a recognised as a state party in at least four states.

    NCP, BSP and CPI no longer fulfil any of the above conditions. The three parties had time till June 27 to contest EC's move and seek a hearing. If they are derecognised, then BJP, Congress and CPI(M) will be the only political parties that will continue to enjoy the national tag. Under the Symbols Order 1968, a party, on losing the national status, does not have the right to fight elections using a common symbol across the country.

    In other words, if the decision is implemented, the analogue clock symbol will not be reserved for all NCP candidates across the country. It can use it only in states where it is recognized as a state party.

    This is equivalent to losing the national character of the party. Also, NCP, BSP and CPI could lose facilities like utilising All India Radio and Doordarshan for poll-eve broadcasts and free copies of electoral rolls, which they enjoyed as national parties

    For a country of India's size it is essential that it have multi party system of democracy.  Vietnam, Cuba are Communist countries which do not allow any other party to exist and their elections are sham elections. Whether BJP or Congress there should be at least these two and more at te national level. But it seems we are heading to strong regional parties at the States and a coalition of them would be at the center. Not a healthy trend.
