Women’s participation and leadership in political activities play a pivotal role in the democratic political system of a country. In the representation of the country, women are still behind.
In India, the representation of women in the political arena is very low and not substantial in leadership. As women comprise half of the population, this section of society requires due attention in the system and due share in the political process.
The constitutional 73rd and 74th amendment Act gives the women reservation of 33% in Panchayati raj institution of India and also Assam Panchayat act gives the women reservation in 50% in Panchayat, but the representation is comparatively growing to law and qualities of leadership and decision making is not satisfactory in Panchayat, they could not occupy a good position in the decision-making process and leading role in the development program.
Also, the government of Assam by the Assam Panchayat(amendment)rules,2018, gives importance to the minimum qualifications for candidates which is basically based on education, child policy and the sanitary where is trying to improve the quality of members represent the society.
The present paper analyzed the representation and leadership of women in general of Madhukuchi Gaon Panchayat in specifically in the last two Panchayat elections. However, in electoral politics especially in active political participation of women is pathetic.
