I saw a poster for the municipal elections today. If I’m not mistaken, it’s the first batch of the new posters from the new government. The only thing new, however, is the first line on the poster, that says, “The First Change.” Then it’s an exact same copy of the posters that the Bakhit government rushed out in the extra-time of it’s duration. First of all, I thought the constitutional amendments were the first change, could this be a hidden message that they’re not over, and that his HE Khasawneh is going to re-amend some articles? He never really was clear on that.
And about the participate slogan. They just don’t get it. I don’t want to participate, and I’m part of a huge segment of society that does not in any way want to participate. I’ve been taught my entire life to steer clear of politics and focus on something more productive, like math or becoming a doctor, and now you expect me to participate with a slogan? We are the biggest segment of the population, we are the 99% who don’t really care about who gets elected for municipal elections, all we care about is that he does a good job. Our only demand is, “Don’t mess up the country while we’re busy doing other stuff” and that’s all I want out of politics.
