Political barriers to effective legislation


Barriers to national development in the passing of legislation for the general improvement of social, labour, economic and other conditions, include the use of party politics in the fostering or opposing of measures, thus creating polarization and making agreement difficult. The suppression of political opposition and the effective expression of the interests of minority groups, as well as general political apathy and alienation, are also obstructive to the introduction of remedial or progressive legislation.
