History Hour 30 – “Political Process in Goa and Voting Elections” by Dr. Aureliano Fernandes – Thursday, 19th April 2007.

All elected governments in Goa since Liberation, except one, have been coalitions. Their coming to power with narrow majorities shows that citizens are cynical about political parties in Goa. Coupled with low voter turn out, poor leadership, vested interests, dynastic aspirations and narrow agendas of political parties what do the 2007 elections have in store for Goa. How do we as a cynical electorate vote in this election? Do we have any hope of good governance and fulfilment of people’s aspirations? What can be done in the short term and the long term to improve quality of leadership and governance in Goa? These and other issues relating to ‘Political Process in Goa and Voting at Elections’ will be explored during this talk.
