It isn’t about a candidate

Dear Editor,

Just this past 45th anniversary of our Co-operative Republic, my plea to potential voters was published. However, not long after I was given the bittersweet question, what if someone doesn’t favour any of the presidential hopefuls?

Every five years, we are empowered to choose who must bring us betterment. On May 11, we have been given the right to vent, and must ensure to overwhelmingly support the ballot. Voters should give the presidential hopeful who wins their hearts, a clear route. Not favouring a candidate isn’t a worthwhile reason to abdicate our responsibility, because it isn’t about a candidate, it’s about giving a group the responsibility to usher the republic away from third world disadvantages.

 

Yours faithfully,
Hercules Ramphal
