Constitutional change is always tinged with a tense and lasting political constellation in both national and international contexts. the existence of transactional politics to gain seats constantly influences political dynamics in the election period.

This cannot be proceeded. Chairperson of the Political parties in a coalition may expect to get some seats of powers (minister) from the President
