So much money is spent for a candidate to get media attention. Who will finance this luxury? Only the rich can afford to have high position in the government. Later they will use their position to help those who put them in position. Corruption begins in selling your votes and when they are seated its a different story. Third world country politics can not guarantee economic progress.

Don't think this is limited to third world countries. Exactly the same thing is happening right now in America, only the amount of money involved is multiplied many times. This is what we call a democracy, a government elected by the people for the people. What a joke!
