"In a scenario where spending on media campaigns have increased over the years and negative aspects have also come to the surface, the issue of regulations and regulatory bodies become very important. The criticism hurled at the American election system is more about the lack of regulation to control the campaigns of candidates. Very few regulations have been imposed to control the whole process.
