Should there be minimum education qualifications for politicians?

  • Yes i agree

    Yes i agreee In the fast development world every person has quippped with knowledge. For this, information and communication echnology (ICT) is helpful. Through ICT one can improve the education. Education is the prime source for development of human beings. To understand the on-going latest changes the politicians have improve their educational qualifications. Hence, minimum education is must for politicains.
    Yes, it is true that even if person went through higher education still can be unsuitable to be leader but to have a leader that didn't even go through college or university environment is unfathomable. Do we as a country wish to be presented by a dumbfounded persona that cant find the exit or well spoken and expressed figure that can handle any situation that arise at the moment. I was not talking about W. When I was mentioning missed exit although he is good example of misfortune in natural selection. We have to push the education as necessary for qualification of politicians or we will start regressing toward Dark Ages and Spanish Inquisition. Thank you. The person who is preparing for the IAS is most literate person of the country as he leaves his everything luxuries behind for the sake of that post.
    But for the PM or say MP or any post in the politics, just no rules for them. Why, whoever runnning just city should be more literate or running country should be more literate.
    That other case, but atleast he / she should be literate.

  • Entrance exam for politicians

    Yes , politicians also should clear entrance test,.I feel there should be specific entrance exam for politician to enter in to politics .For LDC,TYPIST,PEON,IAS,IFS,IITS,MEDICINE etc...Has entrance exam to seek the job ,where as politician not even graduate who is ruling the whole country . No way .There should be definitely some entrance exam should be .And it should be added in one of the competitive exam list.

  • Yes as being politician mean to understand the people`s problems.

    Is~literate people doesn`t know what people`s of the country want. They according to me aren`t eligible to contest elections as they would be unable to make new laws.They will become corrupt which will affect nation/state.THEREFORE according to me at least minimum education qualifications for politicians should be compulsory as education is the key for success.

  • Yes, there should be minimum qualification for a politician.

    An educated mind is a healthy mind, and a healthy mind can also govern in a healthy way. Educated person is able to think logically and can also differentiate between the right and wrong which is necessary in politics.
    How can you just give your country in the hands of a person who doesn't know how to handle himself/herself?
    It is not that the person should be highly qualified but there should be the minimum qualification obtained by him/her.

  • Education qualification is necessary to be a leader to develope a nation

    In my point of view education is essential in politician qualification because he/she is the one who owns the responsibility to take decision..
    The politician should have minimum educational qualification and must have good knowledge because knowledge gives right decision and development of nation is possible.Educated politician will also think about other people.

  • Educated versatility , country development rapidly.

    A human with education is considered to be only the resource for development of the county. And if the leaders of the human resource are ill literate then there would no proper guidelines for human resource. An ill-literate leader would have no thinking, realizing and implementing ability, which he needs to uphold. And without a proper educated as well as literate leader the country would always face the fear of invasion from other foreign countries. The political system will be hampered as its supremacy will be devastated. Crime and offences will rapidly increase in different parts of the country as no one will be feared from the power of the government. Not only this the countries future human resource will also be hampered, as the young children will make a mindset that, study has no value because people deprived of education are more prosperous than the educated ones.
    Uneducated politician may misuse there power and in spite of thinking for development they will get themselves involved in criminal activities. They would not bother of citizens deficiency and problems. They would become corrupt and would help underworld hazardous. In order to prevent the country from all this shortcomings, rules should be implemented that 'people having a limit of education qualification could take part in political system of the country.
    Therefor there should be minimum education qualification for politicians.

  • It is not important to be qualified

    Our current PM Narendra Modi is not highly educated but he is still the prime minister of India. It is a proud for us that we have such a great politition with us. If there would be any qualification then modi could not be able to stand for elections. So my opinion is that there should not be any qualification for politicians.

  • Knowledge is important not the degree

    According to me a ploitician must have the necccesary knowledge to run the country. He should have the courage to take importrant steps like Mr. Modi does.Degree is not much important as degree doesn't mean that they are honest or patriot or good leaders.For ex. Lalu Prasad is highly literate but he one the most corrupted and unmannered leader of India. So manners and honesty doesn't come from degree.That's why there should be no such necessary condition for the politicians.

  • Education is not a basic criteria for a politician.

    According to me educational qualification is not very necessary for a politician. A politician should have some other qualities to run a country like he must be honest,hard-working,sincere and uncorrupted, and the most important he should have strong leadership quality.Therefore education is not a fix criteria to analyze a leader.There are so many leader who are educated and still they are corrupt. We take an example of Mr. A. Raja who is highly educated and is one of the most corrupt leader who involved in 2G scam.

  • Need of knowledge not education

    There is no need of any educational qualifications for a person to become a politician. A child who has a basic knowledge of science is better than a scientist who has a degree in science. Same applies here. Arun Jaitley, India's finance minister is a lawyer. He needs only basic knowledge to present the budget and not a degree.

  • We are a representative democracy.

    Like it or not, we are a government by and for the people and that means all of the people. Not a select few who have the right education to do the job. Who would you want to define those terms of education qualifications, anyway? The Republicans and Democrats alike would be changing them so often to favor their own candidates that any attempt would be meaningless.

  • No it's not necessary

    In my opinion it's not at all required to have an educational qualification for the politicians.Introducing necessary educational qualification for eligibility for contesting elections , in a country like India ,where about 80% of the population is illiterate ,will go much against the spirit of democracy for the sole reason as it will deprive the majority of the population ,their right to contest elections...
    A good politician must be a good leader first, who can take good decisions,empathise with people ,have a vision for the future and of course must know the way to get there.
    It doesn't really matter ,if the person owns some degree or not-what matters is his love for the nation.The person should be honest, patriot and devoted to the country ..And unfortunately there is no such degree bestowned for exhibiting these qualities!!!
    Now let us come to the present scenario where we have a highly qualified legislature of MLAs and MPs certified from around the world's best universities,from Harvard ,oxford to st. Masuchauttes --
    but let me remind you that most of them have their best foot forward in all the scams taking from the 2-G scam to the coal scam and what not....The nation is now fed up of people with high acadimity,all we want is people with HONESTY, INTEGRITY and COMMITMENT !!!!

  • It's About What's Inside.

    To be a good politician, you need to be a good leader. That means you need to be able to take good decisions, empathize with the people, have a vision for a future and a way to get there - none of those are things you learn at school or college. Literacy is necessary, maybe, but not a college degree. Abraham Lincoln never had a full year of schooling in his entire life, and you can't deny he was an amazing leader.

  • No its not compulsory that politicians must be educated

    A person who has love for there nation, people and society would not get a opportunity to rule our country as we have seen modi who was just a tea seller and did his schooling getting just mere marks is now CM of Gujarat who did a lot for the people with his innovatory ideas. If there was such a law then people who are efficient to rule the country could not come out.

This shouldn't even be a discussion! Leader has to be educated or she/he can not lead! Only people who are not educated themselves would think its OK to have ignorant leader as long as person is honest and this is not meant as insult but people have feeling that someone from their non educated background is representing them. I hope that people will comprehend that uneducated person would not and could not ever be a leader, but merely a puppet that will be easily outplayed and out maneuvered and on the end used by smart and educated person.
