Power and Legitimacy in Developing Countries

Auther : Abdallah Sayed Hadiyya

As an introduction, this paper deals in the first part with some Latin, Anglo-saxon and Marxist doctrines of power, especially its definition, main elements and criteria of legitimacy. In the second part, economics, social and political approaches are adopted in dealing with the actual performance and legitimacy of political power in developing countries .Special interest has been taken to elaborate the interrelationships between is disabled economic structures and gigantic multi-national firms of the developed countries. This led to the breading of a new social stratum closely linked economically and politically with these firms. Through crooked means, such as the falsification of elections and different types of pressures, it seizes all political power and oppresses public organizations and political parties if any, which dare to oppose its monopoly and misuse of power. Lacking the consent of the polity strips this socio-political stratum of any legitimacy to rule and opens the way to different manifestations of political unrest, which in turn humper development. Such regimes ruled by narrowly based cliques depending upon force rather than consent constitute a general phenomenon in underdeveloped countries.
