#ccstalks Tweetchat on ‘Is promulgating ordinances democratic?’

Event Date: 07 Jan 2015; Time: 7-8 pm
Venue: tweetchat.com #ccstalks

The Constitution of India grants an ‘extraordinary’ power to the President that allows him to pass an ordinance when (a) both Houses of the Parliament are not in session and (b) he is satisfied that circumstances exist which render it necessary for him to take immediate action. In the last week, nine ordinances have been promulgated by the government. Is this democratic? Join us for #ccstalks, Wednesday, 7 January 2015 from 7-8pm as we debate this issue. Log in to tweetchat.com or Twitter and follow #ccstalks. We look forward to speaking with you!
