Abstract

The political elite emerged in Nagaland after the creation of Nagaland statehood. Many Naga leaders were of the opinion that political elite emerged out of nationalist activities that most of the leaders who held an important leader in the Government and political parties after its statehood were formerly the leaders of the Naga National movement. The introduction of a Universal adult franchise and representative democracy under the constitution paved the way for periodic elections which build popular leaders who were not necessarily from the ruling elites but commoners who have faith in democracy. The real power shifted to legislators who became the decisions makers in the new Parliamentary system of government in Nagaland. The elected leaders were empowered to act independently in the decision making with enthusiasm and knowledge that they were not only architects but became a responsible leaders for the future of the people.
