I DISAGREE with columnist Paul Williams’ idea of the people choosing candidates for their electorate (C-M, Apr 12).

It could end up being a shemozzle, especially with some of the candidates who put up their hands.

With their one-eyed ideas and their argumentat­ive ways nothing would ever get started or finished.

You must select the best candidates. The best people to do that are the branch members who know who would be the most reliable candidate.

If the people of the electorate were to pick a candidate, the most useless political person on Earth could be elected if he or she was popular with the people.

As for the suggestion of doing it the American way, we have our own system and it works quite well.
