Solution

1. Without political parties, democracies cannot exist. If we do not have political parties, every candidate will be independent.
2. No one will be able to make any promises to people about major policy changes.
3. The government may be formed but its utility will remain uncertain.
4. Elected representatives will be accountable to their constituency for what they do in their locality but no one will be responsible for how the country will run.
5. As societies become large and complex, they also need some agencies to gather different views on various issues and to present these to the government.
