Men and Men: Guardians of the Good

29 Sep

In a moment of reflection, I could not just help wondering the great responsibilities that have come to the shoulders of the men and men who have been placed to kick-start the new constitution for the Maldivian people. The members of the election commission, the supreme court bench, the judicial services commission and others have on them, the onous to make the right decisions.

The difficult thing is that there is little precedence, institutional memory and wisdom that are a function of good decisions; for these institutions. They have to do a rush job and ensure that it is done democratically, fairly and correctly. There is no democratic culture in us, yet everyone expects these immature institutions to do a first-class job void of any flaws, and therefore will not accept anything short of their personal belief.

That is an unfathomable challenge that the men and men who make up these institutions are faced with today. I can only empathize with them.

    if we know no one can come up with the right judgement free from prejudice, then let’s just forget about all this nonsense.

    in an environment where negetive energy is so highly activated,what is good for you may not apear as good for others.The current situation of maldives political arena is surrounded by this energy, I assume.Therefore, it is very unlikely that any one can up with a right judgement free from this moment aren`t we all going through a dark tunnel marching forward with a beautifully decorated slogan of “Qaumaigen kurina” towards a light of hope which might turned to be the head light of a fast moving train.

    Human Rights Commission is at the forefront of the elections. They are working to make sure that it is free and fair. The commission is made up of men and women. So the women have a say in the process. It’s not the men only. Please correct yourself.
