Quels pays sont les plus démocratiques ? 🌎

Dans ce #thread avec @TF1Info, on vous dévoile l’état de la #démocratie dans la monde grâce au dernier classement de @TheEIU, entreprise britannique appartenant à @TheEconomist.
Chaque année, @TheEconomist publie un classement des pays selon l’état de leur #démocratie. Mais comment les pays sont-ils classés ? 🤔
@TheEconomist attribue à chaque pays un #index #démocratique (une note sur 10), calculé grâce à la moyenne de plusieurs indicateurs : processus #électoral et #pluralisme, fonctionnement du #gouvernement, participation #politique, culture politique et #libertés #civiles.

Aquí está la iniciativa sobre reforma política y electoral que se presentó ayer en el Congreso y que propone las siguientes modificaciones:…
1. Reducir de 40 a 33 el porcentaje mínimo para que el resultado de un proceso de revocación de mandato sea vinculante; curioso que no se haya propuesto lo mismo para las consultas populares y más sabiendo que estas podrían solicitarse cada año...
2. Eliminar totalmente el financiamiento ordinario (el de año con año) a los partidos políticos. Mantiene el financiamiento público para campañas electorales sin mayores modificaciones al esquema de distribución del 70-30%; una fórmula perversa que no fue tocada en lo absoluto.

#Primer on #Ethiopian Politics

#Unitarist Vs #Federlaist

- Has little to do with level of #decentralisation of power ordinarily associated with these notions

A critical mass of Ethiopians support #federalism-incl most, if not all, forces within ruling party - incl Abiy - 1
For #ethnonationalists, I believe, any politics based on individual #equality (citizenship or republican politics) is #Unitarist - so #Nigeria, #Kenya (which ban ethnic parties), #Germany and #UnitedStates are Unitary, regardless of their robust federal/devolved structures - 2
What ethnonatioanlists consider #federalist is actually politics based on #ethnicity - (which goes beyond ethnic federalism) - much like Arend Lijphart's prototypical #consociational system - so soemthing like #Belgium and #BosniaHerzegovina, but for 80+ ethnic groups – 3

THREAD on Friday's parliamentary crisis in #Mogadishu and broadly #Somalia's existing #electoral turmoil. I discuss what happened, and towards the end, I offer a possible electoral solution for a way forward. 1/17
At stake are two issues: did #Speaker #Mursal and opposition MPs follow the parliamentarian procedures, and does the speaker have the authority, under the parliament's rules & regulations, to suspend the 15 opposition MPs for 5 seating? Second, where do we go from here? 2/17
The speaker cited Art. 16 (1,2); Art. 18 (a, b); Art. 19 - 1 (b, c, d, e, f, g) & Art. 28-5 (n). Most of the above articles deal with the speaker's powers, the deputies, and governs' behaviors/conduct of legislators when parliament is in session. 3/17

¿Por qué se ha disparado el #dólar en estos días? El #InvestigadorCIUP @CParodiT lo explica en tres puntos (Hilo)
Primero, la incertidumbre #electoral. Es usual que en las semanas previas a cualquier proceso electoral aumente la demanda por #dólares y con ella su precio.
Segundo, la incertidumbre sanitaria. El lento proceso de #vacunación y el aumento de los #contagios generan una mayor cautela en las decisiones de #inversión.

So let's unpack this.

We hear a lot about "#dashboards"; we were even promised sight of one, back in March* - though we've not seen it yet.

But what are they, in reality?

*… ImageImage
Well, for starters, we know quite a bit about @NHSEngland's 'dashboard(s)': back in March, @MattHancock gave it powers to DEMAND confidential patient information from care providers*, for (broadly defined) "#COVID19 purposes"...

Under the #COPInotices:…
...and we know @NHSEngland's hoovering up *at least* 70 different datasets into its #DataStore (the list at is no longer comprehensive due to the controversial contents of some of the datasets).

As its "#PrivacyNotice" points out,… Image

1] As citizens wait patiently for the #HighCourt ruling on the matter regarding #MDC_T's parenthood of the #MDC_A, i fail to see how the judgement changes anything really.

This is because the #MDC_A is now a political party.
Something which a court can neither confirm nor deny.
2] The crux of this matter is more #political than it is #legal.

Though #Mwonzora & team were arguing today that the #MDC_A was an #electoral pact which merely now exists as some faction of the #MDC, only a week ago, he had people recalled for joining a party called "#MDC_A".
3] Although #Mwonzora was argues the MDC-A is a 2018 coalition, which ceased to exist post elections, nothing suggest the "individual parties" continued existing as such.

For post 2018 bi-elections,what strategy was used to choose candidates if the parties remained autonomous?

📢🔔Some good news amidst the pandemic:

Our article, "Protesting Parties: a comparative analysis", co-authored with Swen Hutter @swenhutter, is now published open-access in Party Politics:…

These are some of the key contributions we make (thread 🧵1/8)
Bridging the literature on party competition and protest politics, we examine the extent to which parties mobilize in the #protest arena, the types of protest events they sponsor, and the profile of the typical #ProtestingParty [2/8]
The analysis is based on protest events (@PoldemData) in 30 European countries between 2000 and 2015.
We show that party involvement depends on the dynamics in the protest arena and on context differences, such as the age of #democracy and the strength of #CivilSociety [3/8]

A Thread on #ElectoralBonds Investigations. Please stay with me.

There is something useful towards the end of this tweet-trail.

1. Happenings in Maharashtra show why #ElectoralBonds, a to flush secretly funnel unaccounted money into politics, is dangerous for our democracy.
2. The #Electoral Bond Investigation series, hosted by @HuffPostIndia, was based on #CommodorePapers. Transparency activist, Commodore Lokesh Batra (retd) retrieved the docs under the RTI Act.
3. Commodore Batra required nearly 2 years to pull the files out with repeated RTIs and a lot of effort.

Every one of us who values these revelations on the scandalous #ElectoralBonds must thank him.

Modi govt has now diluted the RTI law.
