Ralph insists on having rules on the island and at first Jack agrees with him although his jealousy for Ralph’s power drives him to constantly undermine and disobey Ralph and his requests. By blowing the conch Ralph can call a meeting whenever he likes, to discuss issues and give orders. “‘Ralph sat on a fallen tree
As Jack begins to rise to power Ralph no longer has a drive to even speak to the boys. This can be seen when Ralph picks up the conch to call a meeting and puts it down. He puts it down because he fears that no one will listen to him, that all his requests would be ignored. Losing all his confidence as a leader and the order on the island would diminish.

From what Ralph said, I learnt that he was trying to deal things in a responsible manner, putting things into order, by first making sure that the place where the boys were in was an island.

His ideas always seem to make the most sense, but have trouble getting his messages through. I believe that Piggy would actually make the best leader out of the boys, but his physical appearance is what sets his leadership skills apart from ralph.
