Editorial: In rejecting the plan proposed by parliament to reform the electoral process, the president clearly acted in the best interests of the nation. Anyone who thinks otherwise should remember that the president made this decision knowing it would be met with fierce opposition at home and widespread disapproval abroad. All citizens who place the nation??s well-being above narrow partisan interests will applaud this courageous action.
The reasoning in the editorial is in error because
(A) it confused a quality that is merely desirable in a political leader with a quality that is essential to effective political decision-making
(B) it fails to distinguish between evidence concerning the courage required to make a certain decision and evidence concerning the wisdom of making that decision
(C) it ignores the likelihood that many citizens have no narrow partisan interest in the proposed
(D) it overlooks the possibility that there was strong opposition to the parliament??s plan among members of the president's among members of the president's own party
(E) it depends on the unwarranted assumption that any plan proposed by a parliament will necessarily serve only narrow partisan interests
