Election is coming soon and the writer firmly believed that election is the only way to have an opportunity and chance to elect and choose the best leader that we liked. Only during this time of election we can have some prospects as well as can exercise our rights “the freedom of suffrage”. Being a concern citizen of this country, we should therefore, use our coconut shells and open our eyes to scrutinize, to evaluate the qualifications of the candidate! We should always encourage and motivate ourselves to be honest and to be wise in choosing and selecting the best and the good candidates.
First. Encourage ourselves to choose for a lesser evil. Whether we like it or not, nowadays we cannot really find real genuine leaders for most of the leaders who are running today are only just after for power, recognition, money, and most of all popularity. That is why; we should try to scrutinize their plata porma, family background, educational background, political background, so we can escape from the sayings, History Repeat Itself!
Two. Encourage ourselves to stand for what is true and noble. What I am trying to convey is that, we should stand firm to our principle. Do not sell our rights! For this is the only opportunity that we can exercise our freedom of suffrage. Above all, this is the only opportunity that we can have a change and innovation for good of our country. Therefore, do not let others to manipulate our decisions. Stand firm. Be a man! Don’t acts like a coward!
Wish you many blessings to come and God Bless!
