    Thank you , that's the best decision to take to support whoever abolish the executive presidency. If not they will pay hell with the power. That's the motive of most candidates.

    Scap presidency with 13th amendment. Even now it needs to work there are no barriers. No one needs to work and want to earn for their families by billions.

    13th amendment was brought in under duress with India breathing down our necks! It should be abolished; is not beneficial for the progression of our country!
