Nishall’s Blog: Parliamentary candidates need to be community focussed

Politics / Mon 20th Apr 2015 at 12:37pm

AFTER listening to couple of TV debates and Election Hustings, I have seen one thing, most candidates for MP only talk about their party manifesto and not what they will do for the constituency they will be elected for, they do attack each other on what the competition has done for people but don’t really say to constituents what they will do for the particular area, only talk on a national level.

I know that each candidate has to promote their party, so they can be on the government and not the opposition, however as constituents, we have the right to know what each candidate will do for the community, as most people knows what the parties mean on a national level.

After watching the TV debates and Election Hustings, I can happily tell you what the party manifesto is for the parties, so when candidates repeated in every talk they do, it gets quite frustrating as you personally have to apply the the manifesto to your community as the candidates don’t actually tell what they will do for you personally.

Young people like myself, care more for our local community, and when candidates only talk on a national level, therefore it is really hard to choose who to vote for, as you don’t know how each candidate will make the place you live, work or study better.

So, all I say to our candidates around our country is tell the people what you are going to do for them, everyone knows what the parties are going do to for the country, but what makes you the perfect individual for the people to represent their voices in Parliment as an MP! This is what will make you more appealing to the voters, not party manifesto!
