Your vote is your life…so don’t forget to go to vote on 28 July 2013. Vote with your will and conscience.
In Cambodia, politics has been shaped from different original context. Many Cambodians have conveyed politics as a bad thing that themselves including their family don’t want to talk about it or to get involved with it. Politics has been translated as “greed”, “power ambition”, “scary thing” or “get away from it” etc. The past killing field and civil war have showed them an evidence of the above belief. The longest serving prime minister and the rampant corruption in society have also showed them an evidence of the above belief etc.
However, this fifth National Election happening this 28 July 2013 has shaped new phenomena and those crowded participation of the young people (youths) will absolutely translate into “popular politics” as well as “popular concept of change” in Cambodia.
Thus, the original concepts of politics mean:
– Participation in the politics and caste your vote is the cultivating the crops of rice to feed your stomach
– Participation in the politics and caste your vote is the effort to bring about your mental and physical health
– Participation in the politics and caste your vote is the cultivating for freedom
– Participation in the politics and caste your vote is the protecting of your national sovereignty
Above concepts have been endorsed by world scholars especially Lord Buddha. He instructed that “mankind is survived by food”, “the ultimate goal of mankind is freedom”, “the wellness of mankind is considered both mind and body”, etc.
