When you cast your vote will you go by the party or the personality?
It's a choice between the worse and the worst. I'll go with the personality.
What is the first issue you want addressed?
Unemployment. Better job opportunities will empower youth.
What, according to you, has been the biggest failures and successes of the current state government?
Biggest failure — closing down of a number of educational institutions. Greatest success — the free medicine scheme.
What bothers you most about the state/country?
The fact that there is no employment for young people.
Is this the first time you will be voting?
Are you satisfied with our politicians?
No. Present day politicians have brought shame to politics. Politics is now a much hated word.
Do you think politics/elections can improve the life of the common man?
It can, if done on good faith. But going by the current crop of politicians, it is the chosen way of some greedy people.
