Inequality is the greatest threat to justice

Politically, inequality can be described as a side effect of intentional systems, structures and policies that discriminate in favour of a few and against many others.
Transparency and accountability in systems, structures and policies should be regarded as crucial to the future of our country as a nascent democracy.
Every democracy around the world depends on a system of checks and balances, in which the government, the parliament and the judiciary have some control over one another. These three branches are also referred to as executive, legislative and judicial powers.
These terms confuse people. Simply put, the executive power is another word for the government, the legislature or legislative power for the parliament, and the judicial power for the judiciary. Although they are separate institutions with different functions, they are to work closely together to enact laws.
Although the government runs the country by developing policies and drafting laws, the parliament has the power to check and scrutinize the activities of the government and question its ministers, apart from examining, debating, amending and approving laws. The judiciary is to put those laws into effect and enforce them, while remaining impartial.
Since the government is voted into power by the people, it must act in the interests of none but the people and the country. The changing balance of power among the three pillars can be interpreted as inequality, which will no doubt become the greatest threat to the rule of law to the detriment of justice, the stability of peace and prosperity.
