The election is 5 months from now. Since we release the complete list of Candidates, there has been numerous feedback about these candidates. There has been some animated discussion, some agreement and some contrasting ideas.
One thing for sure, these candidates may never engage in an open discussionin this site or other forum such as FaceBook groups (e.g. Abra Elections 2013 – i suggest you also check it out, it’s an open group). And why is that? My thinking is that, either they are uncomfortable with the medium of communication, too cautious, they don’t think it’s necessary (answering will not affect their chance to the voters), or just don’t care (I’ll resort to vote buying and intimidation anyway, who can stop me).
Nonetheless, as an Abrenian, I have the right to ask questions to all these candidates, who, if successful, will be in power to make or break Abra.
Anyway, Personally, there’s only one question I’m going to ask these candidates. I’m going to ask straight up “WHY WILL I VOTE FOR YOU?”.
I may never get an answer. But who knows…
