Lesotho is ready to consolidate electoral democracy, are you? Cast your vote and be part of 85% voter turnout on the 3rd June 2017 in order to build the Lesotho you want.
We can change our country if we will. Remember that the change we desire can be accomplished through good governance. One of the pillars of good governance is participation and this means we need to take part and be involved in the development process. Men and women of this country need to participate so that the government can make informed choices. But how will that be possible if we do not take part in elections? One of the pillars of governance is accountability. Government has to be accountable for it to be deemed good, however, to whom will it be accountable if we do not vote?
It is time dear nation, that we bring the change we want. Let us all go and vote for the government and the kind of governance we want in this our mother-land.
Remember this is what you are voting for:
- Someone who is going to draw policies and laws in parliament
- Someone who is going to allocate public money
- Someone to monitor how public money is used
- Someone to monitor and follow up on the implementation of policies and laws of Lesotho
- Someone to hold Ministers accountable and monitor their work
Therefore brethren, let us be part of governance in our country and be informed about what we are voting for. Above all, let us all pray for peaceful, free and fair elections.
“Come let us rebuild so that we will no longer be a disgrace” Nehemiah 2:17
