Why is it hard to share power?

Thinking-Question.jpg

This week, we've learnt that military and civilian leaders in Sudan said they would share power in Sudan until elections could be held – but people from both sides often fought.

So why do you think it is hard to share the power of running a country?

You don't have to write about Sudan specifically - but use some of these keywords to help you think of answers:

  • responsibilities
  • decisions
  • ideas
  • conflict
  • rights
  • people

For example:

"I think it is hard to share power because..." and add your reasons. Try to use some of the words above. Write no more than four sentences. The best answers will also bring in other keywords that go beyond those above.

    I think it's hard to share the powers because of variation in ideas. Another reason may be the want of both sides to get a high position and have power to rule the country as a entity.

        power is a relative thing. if something that only is malleable by you then you have power over it. The future is unpredictable but based on my intuitions it will be more or less the same scenario but a thing that may change is that there will be so many factors that people will try to hold power over more vital things, and while they may be scope for other things, the most important powers will be a thing of struggle for all

    I think that power-sharing is hard because not everyone thinks the same, and this will lead to conflicts and problems, and this will negatively affect the state, and it will be a beautiful point for neighboring countries to exploit them and exploit the state’s lands, and citizens may covet things that they are not entitled to.

    I think it is difficult to divide power because of decisions. How can the two people control the decisions? There will be many disputes and disagreements on a trivial issue, and then they will destroy the state with their own greed.

    I think that it is difficult to share power, because every person responsible or chief has different ideas and views from the other, and this leads to a lack of consensus and may lead to differences and tendencies between chiefs, conflicting decisions and thus lack of organization of the people and people. This makes the country collapse and fall
    Therefore, every country should have one authority and one president in order to develop and progress.

    I think it is difficult to share power because it constitutes a lot of conflicts. When I was in the eighth grade, we held separate elections and when the result was equal in number, my colleague and I were equal in number as the school days passed. Her behavior was not to my liking. She was neglected. Sharing the power I thinkThey should choose the smartest and most experienced.

    I think that it is difficult to share power because there will be a lot of conflicts over money and on many other things. The people do not know if a calamity occurs, who is responsible and who should be resolved. If one of the two sides of the state tends to his relatives, he will give rights to his relatives, and he will not give rights to people on the other side of the The state and when something is thought of, everyone’s opinion must be taken, and this will prolong the time and they will not implement these ideas or decisions, and this will cause a crisis for the state

    I think that it is difficult to share power because of decisions. If there are two authorities, they will dispute who has the right to make decisions. This will lead to a lack of commitment to responsibilities, the emergence of conflicts, and the failure to give civilians their rights, as the saying goes, "The success of the decision depends on who makes the decision.""

    I will not accept what America has done and provides the Sudanese with adequate aid in terms of clothes, money, food, etc. I advise them to follow the orders of physical health and to preserve the value of the country. I tell the neighboring countries and cities that provide valuable aid to communicate with them and make them send valuable and sufficient aid to the Sudanese, such as Saudi Arabia and Yemen If I were the president or minister of my country, I would make my city the first state or place on which I am based, by making it not see poverty or hunger at all, and I would make parks and do each person with his requirements and what he needs from winter, summer, spring and autumn clothes, and sufficient healthy food, and distribute it to the merchants and the merchant If he sells it at a cheap price, the poor person will be able to buy it..... I will be proud that I am the president of my country and I will make everyone in my country to slander me with his tongue on goodness and thanks... But we have to help Sudan

    I don't think power can be shared
    A ship cannot sail with more than one captain because it will surely sink
    Participation in making the right decisions is for the competent, and everyone has to define responsibilities and know the rights so that the state does not enter into a conflict that leads to the deprivation of rights, restriction of freedoms and the prevention of constructive ideas.

    I think it is hard to share power because people's views will always differ from what those in power might think and if you govern with an idea that everyone has the same views as/of you then a problem occurs. Even if you generously share your power evenly you will never gain the desired affect of a unity of beliefs. Sparking conflict between those who have different priorities and responsibilities which may enable a situation where decisions which those in power might not want to make.

    I think that it is difficult to share power, because decisions can only be issued with the consent of all those in power, and this is a problem,Because it is possible that there will be enmity between two parties and he will enter this enmity in decision-making and will cause a defect in the implementation despite the fact that the plan is excellent,Also, the responsibility of the authority should be on one person’s handicap so that he feels more responsible, that is, if we share the authority, Each of the other will begin to be lazy and depend on others, and this is how we destroy the government and its power, and it will turn against the people, and we will start thinking about our local problems, not about global problems that threaten the life of mankind, And this is how we delay ourselves from making decisions, producing ideas, and supporting the people’s ideas and their participation in international conferences, and this is how we steal the people’s rights to share their opinion and live in a safe green environment, And I think that this will negatively affect people, because they will start thinking about immigration and rebellion. This will increase the weakness of the state. Unity is the basis of strength,And if the state weakens, it becomes vulnerable to colonialism, and this will result in war, but an environmental war before it is political or colonial

    Because Sudanese activists refuse to share power and call for strikes. Under the slogan: “No negotiations, no compromise, no compromise, and no power-sharing,” the Sudanese Professionals Association, which is spread throughout the country, called for strikes and civil disobedience.
    * The Transitional Military Council in Sudan and representatives of the opposition signed the state-sharing agreement again, which provides the formation of a transitional governing council of civilians and the military and paves the way towards the election of a civilian government.

One party works for a democratic solution and the other does not believe in the ballot box or the votes of voters. Countries are exposed to such incidents are heading towards an unknown fate Here, the international community must bear the responsibility to guarantee the rights of civilians and work to issue decisions based on resorting to fair elections

    I believe that powers can be divided. The principle of separation of powers is considered one of the basic principles on which Western democracies are based. It is a fundamental principle of democracy in its essence, just as the principle of the sovereignty of the nation and the people is equally important. In order to separate the powers, you must think a lot

    I don't think power-sharing is difficult because if there is an understanding and agreement, then art will do something harm, it will increase people's power, increase their civilization. Good authority, but if there is no agreement between the two parties, the people will turn against the authority and there will be no agreed decisions by the two parties to advance the state, so the state will remain weak and its economy weak.

      I do not agree with you, because I think that power-sharing is easy with the presence of understanding and cooperation between the two parties, and I think that nothing will harm them, but rather it will increase their strength and civilize them, and this is for their benefit. In my opinion, with the presence of understanding, nothing will be difficult, and the ideas of both parties will be ideas of the state, meaning if we combine ideas, they will become ideas Good for the state, but if there is no agreement between the two parties, the people will turn against power and there will be no agreed decisions by the two parties to advance the state, so the state will remain weak and its economy weak.

    I think it would be hard to share leadership and power because different people may have different ideas of what should be what like whether they should put in place a curtain law and there could then be arguments between the people in charge.

      This comment must have taken a lot of thought, supportive_tradition. I found it very interesting to read, particularly when you answered questions as though you were a new leader of Sudan. You said at one point "dependence on other foreign aid will not benefit the people" and so explained that you would not accept any foreign aid if you were in charge. Do you think the people of Sudan would agree with this decision? Why might other people argue that poor countries like Sudan have no choice but to accept aid from countries like America?

        Relying on foreign aid is very bad, because if they continue to receive assistance, they will not think of solving their problem themselves, they will not try to solve the famine. It is the basis of famine and that if any dispute occurred bettween sudan and foreign countries, it would become a famine, but if the aid stopped without any problems, we can ask for it at any time.

    First: It is difficult to share power because the people are the source of authority. Second: All decisions and laws have proven that they have the right to self-determination. Third: A popular referendum must be held for the people to choose their government until elections are held Fourth: Officials, whether civilians or military, must maintain the security of Sudan first.

Some people think that there are people who deserve this power, and others think that if you do not have the ability to hold this power, then the conflict becomes here. It is better for the National Council to hold elections for the Sudanese state, so the situation will be better and problems will be prevented in Sudan.

    It is difficult to share power, in my opinion, now with the sharing of power, the country must be shared, as well as dividing and categorizing people into different groups, policy makers, administrators and officials.
    And also the sharing of the food resources produced by the state by the people and their waste on both sides after the division of power.
    Thus, there will be a shortage of food for the people, and this will generate decisions that are not appropriate from the people to the rulers in terms of the new policy that the food resources have been exploited for the sake of the armies.
    after which will prevent people from their right to have the possibilities for them to practice their normal lives, which will generate ideas for people to create unrest and protests against politics, and there will also always be civil wars between both sides and this is my belief.

    I think that it is not fair to stop the aid to the people of Sudan.... Not only Sudan needs help, maybe other countries... America has no right to stop the aid or stop the money. If the leaders of Sudan are interested in this matter, they have two solutions 1- Wage war on America to send all the rights 2- Talk to it by sending it all the rights without waging war. Among the millions of residents of Sudan, there is a small group that needs aid. It is not fair to stop any aid that reaches the Sudanese state or any other country.

    I think that it is difficult to share power, as it differs from one person to another. There are those who take it to the force and impose their judgment and ideas, as well as those who see it as a responsibility and care about the rights of people, and from here it turns out and produces conflicts and disputes and wastes the rights of the majority of the people, and this in itself is an injustice.

    "I think it is hard to share power because the division of power leads to its weakness and the abundance of disagreements and conflict .

    I believe that it is hard to share power on the grounds that there are individuals who see that they merit power, in contrast to individuals. They consider them to be not appropriate for the position, and here the issue emerges. There are for instance, individuals who need to talk power, usurpation, with the help of outside nations that help them. Assuming unfamiliar nations don't meddle and pass on the make a difference to the decisions, it will be better for better for the state and for individuals.

    I feel that it is hard to share power in light of the fact that there are individuals who see that they merit power, in contrast to individuals. They consider them to be not appropriate for the position, and here the issue emerges. There are for instance, individuals who need to talk power, usurpation, with the help of far off nations that help them. Assuming that unfamiliar nations don't meddle and pass on the make a difference to the races, it will be better for better for the state and for individuals.

    It is difficult to share power, because democracy may have dire consequences in the region's turbulent climate. But sometimes the pillars come to the town, but the citizen's voice in the decision-making process is absent from legislation that guarantees a system of real credit, balance, oversight, and accountability. Also, there is an urgent need today societal consensus for a national dialogue that includes the security services that have protected and protected this country, but it is in need of renewing its political and economic outlook.

    Sharing power is in the interest of the state because democracy may bring serious consequences in a turbulent regional climate and it is difficult to share power because of the candidates to take power as each candidate wants to be the president and take the appropriate decision about All the people in the state, as it leads to tendencies between the candidates for the position of president in the state, and there are also tendencies between the individual in society, as each individual wants a specific candidate, as this leads to a conflict between two people and harms all From the two individuals and some candidates for the position can bribe everyone who supports them

    I think that it is hard to share the power of running a country because many people who are running the country together might have different thoughts and ideas and might begin a conflict over just one thing.Some people think that they deserve to have more power than the other group and also think that it is not a suitable decision to make as they might be blamed for the fault of everyone.

    I think that it is difficult to share power, because when power is shared, each of them will go to his own life, which will lead to neglect of responsibility and a dispute over land and this will lead to neglecting the rights of citizens.

    It is hard to share power because of the lacking of mutual understanding between the leaders and political parties. Everyone thinks that they are the one , who are only worthy of leadership and thus they misunderstands the power of 'unity' . But we can easily overcome this problem by simply realizing the importance of others .

    think that it is difficult to share power because the authority wants a person who takes responsibility and the person is just and ruler and always takes the right decision and it is difficult to choose the person because many want to be the decision maker and this is a mistake. To address all the different opinions and problems that must be reached to their roots and resolved once and for all, thus avoiding the problem of differing opinions, as the homeland is a right for all.

    While force may be a struggle for all, I believe that sharing power is difficult and will lead to conflict and and many problems other for the country. This will negatively affect everyone. In my opinion, It is important that every country has one authority and one president for the sake of progress and development. and I do not accept and do not allow what America did in Sudan. It is better if Amercia gave Sudan and it's people the chance to handle their own conflict instead of creating an extra conflict. Trying to control the situation in Sudan, a new conflict was born, which is that between America and every person who is against it's interfere in the Sudanese affairs. The saddest thing about sharing power, rather than being hard to share, that people are always the victims of politics and struggles among countries. We should give people their rights, especially their main human rights. No one has the right to control them, no one has the right to silence their voices or interfere in their issues.

      Can you explain what you mean by "what America did to Sudan" and America "created extra conflict"?

    I think it's difficult to share power because one person is always greedy and wants more, then they start to believe that there superior or deserve more than other people. This person would make the wrong decisions for his country and people but the right for himself because he believes that he deserves more than everyone else. Like for example Sudan, the military wanted to take over because they wanted POWER, in my opinion power makes people greedy and selfish.

    I see it is difficult to share power and I do not support any country in stopping aid from its neighbors. Aid plays an important role in the lives of the people. I do not see a reason for a foreign rule to interfere in another country and impose its rules on the country. Rather, it has to provide assistance and a helping hand in resolving disputes.

    think that it is difficult to share power because it will bring together a lot of parties who will try to make decisions, and thus will produce ideas that differ from each other, and there will be a conflict in imposing ideas, and each party will work to satisfy his supporters and his constituency that appointed him, so the state falls into the quagmire of quotas, nepotism and interests, so people's rights are lost and conflict and conflict ignite In power, and consequently, a conflict between people, and thus, power-sharing creates real grievances, negative effects, and an absence of social justice in the distribution of rights.

    It is difficult to share power between two parties because each party has ideas, principles, and goals that differ from the other, and each party has a leader. It is difficult for a leader to accept decisions from a leader like him. In the end, the two parallel lines do not meet.
