KeADILan: Members to choose leaders directly
Posted December 23, 2008on:
Such an idea has never been done anywhere. But it is mulled by some quarters within the party.
It is the ideal electoral process – an election where each member gets to choose leaders of their choice for the party; the party election process being undertaken simultenously in all parts of the country.
It needs the infrastructure to ensure a true, fair and transparent election; the resources neeeded will be way beyond whatever was needed before.The infrastructure should of course include complete assurance of level palying field for all.
The intention to totally avoid money politics may backfire, for only those candidates with financial backup will be able to travel far and wide to make themselves known nationally.
Well, we’ll just have to wait if there will ever be a blueprint for such an idea…
