Politicians to blame for voter apathy
THE EDITOR, Sir: I AM not surprised with how the local government elections turned out. One factor was the limited options to choose from and again for the lack of voters.
Confidence in the parties and their style of politics is waning among Jamaican voters, especially within the youth majority. The apathy and non-participation are testament of the youth wanting much more from the elected but high-and-mighty officials, who after the elections feel they’ve put themselves in the position. On Monday, I witnessed people going about their normal business with not a care in the world and even looking surprised at the sight of the polling division on Molynes Road.
NO LONGER FOOLED
