Are they ready?

EVERYONE knows that we are currently facing the worst economic crisis. But, this is not the first time we are in a mess. Every new government adopts the same approach. They promise that the situation will improve under them but that rarely happens. Each government has been worse than the one before it…which is why we are in this position over and over again.

In my opinion our political parties don’t prepare for what to do after the elections are over.

When they come to power — instead of focusing on the people and their problems, they busy themselves for the next elections.

In the time between the elections, they should think about the people who vote for them and the problems they face.

During this period they should critically study the problems the country is facing and make plans to tackle them. Economic stability is essential to solve all other problems of the nation. Every party, while preparing for the polls, should pay attention and understand the economic problems and make plans to improve it when they take over.
