question 2

In what six ways can a government of a state violate the principle of the Rule of Law?


This was a very unpopular question and many of the candidates who attempted it failed to understand the demands of the question. The candidates' performance in this question was below average.
The candidates were expected to give the following answers:

(i)  manipulation of the constitution to suit the selfish interest of the executive instead of the national interest;
(ii)  ineffective control of delegated legislation;
(iii)  interference with the independence of the judiciary;
(iv)  inability of the legislature to check the excesses of the executive;
(v)  flouting of decisions of the judiciary by the executive and the legislature;
(vi) disrespect for Fundamental Human Rights by government and its agents.
