Time to Deliver
What we want from the next government

As we ready ourselves for the next general elections what is on every voter's mind is: Will the next government live up to the expectations we have of it? It is an electorate eager to exercise their democratic right and thirsty for real change. Many of the seasoned political parties may find that such expectations to be a little overwhelming, considering their long track record of failing to deliver and getting away with it. But they should also feel a great deal humbled by the fact that people still prefer democracy to any other form of governance, that they still have faith in the very parties that have often let them down, enough faith to give them yet another chance.
