#OurVotesCount... Beyond Campaign Promises!

This year’s 2016 Citizens’ Summit is designed to raise awareness on participatory governance and ensure the electorate understands that their role goes beyond casting and defending their votes during elections.

The Summit highlights the imperative for the electorate to hold elected officials accountable to their campaign promises and insist that pre-election rhetoric must be matched with verifiable performance; that is the guarantee for good governance.

Be Aware. Be Alert. Show interest and remain inquisitive, as the price for freedom is eternal vigilance.

To ensure successful performance evaluation, the questions that must agitate our minds are, how involved are the electorate in governance? Have they been adequately consulted and integrated in policy formulation? If yes, to what extent? How have they shown interest and been involved in the implementation of decisions already taken?

That power belongs to the people is a truism. The people must however understand the scale of this domiciled power in their votes. As such, it is of utmost importance that the electorate realizes the nature and scale of the rights their votes accord them and the accompanying responsibilities in exercising them legitimately in electing leaders of their choice. This is the essence of the 2016 Citizens’ Summit.
