Tomorrow, Tanjungpinang will hold Walikora elections. Wherever I go, everyone is talking about their choices. There is even a mutual influence, to select one candidate. And in fact, there was a fight, because they do not choose the same candidate. I'm just a spectator only, because I do not have the right to vote. Because I am a new resident, and have not been included in the voters list. What I wonder, why do they have to fight each other, to maintain Walikota candidate of their choice. In fact, whoever is elected, which is important to lead well. It does not have to fight. Is something like this also happened at your place?

Yes, you are right. This is politics. There are many people who say, politics is very cruel. If you are not able to politics, it is better to avoid. Rather than make a full mental hospital.

Things like that, it often happens everywhere. Usually, the candidate, to spend money, to persuade the public. You should not be surprised. Things like that, sometimes it is set, and the public has been persuaded, with promises, and money.

I have not witnessed any physical fights but have heard a lot of verbal ones. Our presidential election, which will take place in just a few days, is very important because the results will determine what direction our country will go. The two candidates have opposite viewpoints about many things.

Yes. Elected leaders, determine the fate of the people. It is difficult to choose the right leader. This is made, the selection becomes very hot atmosphere.

We will also be facing a general election soon. Even before the candidates are announced they are many people lobbying to be candidates. The first hurdle is fighting to be candidate and the second hurdle is to fight with the opponent to be the winner. Who ever is the winner in an election hold power and can do anything to become rich. So that is why people are fighting to be voted.

Yes. You are right. They struggle, by doing a lot of things, that can be chosen as a leader. But, if to cause hostility, would be no good. Moreover, the hostility between the neighbors, for defending their choice.
