    it will be a prelude to the wide reforms.

    If she is appointed as a president, it will be a prelude to the wide reforms over the country.

    Thank you Tdol.

    Could you tell me why you don't put a article before the president and reforms?

    Re: it will be a prelude to the wide reforms.

    'A president' doesn't work because for any category, there will only be one president at a time. Unless we already know which reforms, we are talking in general. Here there is no further context to suggest which reforms, so it is better without.
