    why not abolish the presidential system altogether. You and all your predecessors have been promising to do just that.

    So, since he didn't abolish it, he doesn't love his country? Haha

    Is that you didn't love the country when you were instrumental in getting it passed in 2015?

    Even the next president will not be able to abolish anything. The parliament can do it, then again why would they want to do it? Just imagine what would have happened on 26/10 if not for the 19th amendment. We need a competent president to establish stability.
