Hit the target, miss the point?

December 15th, 2015 No comments
Two-pronged fundamental objectives of campaigning: (1)introducing the candidate to the voters, and (2)convincing the voters to elect the candidate.

And to attain these, there is a variety of tools for political action employed by individuals and organization involved in electoral campaigns. In many instances, lobby, propaganda, boycott, and even violence are effective tools for campaigns.

Unfortunately, there are some who  believe that these tools are the fundamental reason for the campaign. Totally forgetting the fact that campaigns are supposed to make candidates known to the voters so that the latter can decide intelligently.

I cringe whenever I see campaigners and partisans going after each other's throat, as if the victory of thier respective candidates is dependent on who prevailed in their bickerings. I am uncomfortable with people so obsessed with the propaganda and packaging while totally ignoring the character and personality of the candidate.

To my mind, a viable check to this situation is the adoption of a credible party system that puts premium on programs and directions instead of personalities and propaganda. If you want to occupy public office, convince the public during the campaign that where you will bring them(through your party programs and directions) is the best option for everyone.

Unless we embark on this very important electoral reforms, our campaigns will continue to miss the point for the entire electoral exercise. And our democracy will continue to be more of the "form", missing the "substance".

Campaigns: controversies vs. performance, propaganda vs. facts

December 8th, 2015 No comments
I think political campaigns must consciously gravitate towards performance and facts. I have noticed an alarming trend wherein being controversial is becoming the path to being elected, and astute propaganda is the vehicle for effective campaign. Both of these are not really the essentials for public service. I wish campaigns are more anchored on actual performance and facts. Otherwise, it will not be an electoral  victory for the people but for professional hecklers and propagandists instead.

Living and learning: lessons and life

December 8th, 2015 No comments
As I feel myself advancing in years, I become more aware of the experiences and lessons they bring across time. For example, multitude of faces/persons have come into and have been gone from my life.Some I genuinely liked, others i really loathed. But the amazing thing: there is always a memory retained. Both the good and the bad ones. I just realized that it didnt matter whether the person was good to me or not. Bottomline is that whether we like it or not, the persons that we meet in this lifetime leaves a footprint in our being.
