India: The Political Process
Country Study > Chapter 8 > Government and Politics > The Political Process

THE POLITICAL PROCESS


The decline of the Congress (I) since the late 1980s has brought an end to the dominant single-party system that had long characterized India's politics. Under the old system, conflict within the Congress was often a more important political dynamic than was conflict between the Congress and the opposition. The Congress had set the political agenda and the opposition responded. A new party system, in which the Congress (I) is merely one of several major participants, was in place by 1989 seems to respond to the initiatives of other parties rather than set its own political agenda.
