Before elections, there will be campaigns. With these campaigns, the candidates will be introduced and advertised. It does not matter if they are new to the scene or was been there in a while, there will be still new things to learn about them. It is not just about their promises and the things they would do but also what they have done and what they are doing. Add to that on how they are doing it. It also matters their attitude in doing it. As the saying says, actions speak louder than words.
What does a good candidate should be like? What are the characteristics that they should have that will win as a voter’s choice?
A candidate will surely have a lot of promises. They will also need to introduce themselves and their cause a lot. It is important that they are honest with it and also every word that they say really means a lot to them. Being honest also means not hiding the truth from people. If something is not looking up, they should inform them about it. It is not to scare them but this will help people to be ready and wise. Honesty also means being true for what they are and not showing farce.
The candidate should know about the current issues and other events. Being well-informed means they are interested in the solutions to it. Sure, it will be hard to solve them all, but they sure can provide ideas and steps that will help. It is mentioned earlier that they should be honest when something does not look good, this also means that they should be able to provide some alternatives. It may not always work but this will show people that they are trying and only does best for them.
Being charismatic means they are able to attract and influence the people around them. This is important so that they will be easily able to inform about their cause and agenda, and others will easily understand what it is. Being charismatic is not only about attracting people but also making them curious enough about them that will lead to having more supporters. This is also a great way to advertise them.
If there are issues that need to be solved, they should be focused on it. Also, another factor is them being focused on important aspects that will be helpful to people. This means it will be not about themselves but for more important matters. They should not also be not fickle on what they put their attention to. This does not mean they would ignore other issues but they should not forget about the others either.
A politician’s role is to know the needs of people. This means they are to serve and make ways for the best of all. This also means that they should not take pleasure and seek people’s attention and know that it is not about them but for the public and the good.
