I think this issue is extremeely important. it is not about being pro or anti development . It is about democracy being perceived to be in action. it is about being accountable to the voting public.
we have a new generation of voters and if they see what looks like trickery or bribery and i am not saying it is, we will have even less people going to the polls.
" my vote means nothing because all polititians are corrupt"
Thats my take anyway1
