Today is our national election day, but I don't feel inclined to cast a vote. Why? Here are the reasons why:
The voting policy needs to change. I think there should be two elections, one for the Members of Parliament and another for Prime Minister. As is now I am caught between rock and a hard place. On the opposition side I like the MP candidate but can't see the leader of the opposition as my PM. The reigning party has a new leader who I would love to support, but our member of parliament has been doing corruptible things; he lost his US visa because he was suspected of murder conspiracy. How can I place a vote under such conditions!
That is a problem, Cardisa! At least we get a wide variety of crooks to choose from here in the US!
