A good thing about democracy is stopping the monopoly of power, which means when the time of a person’s power end. The citizens of the country elect another representative. Election is considered an important activity in democratic systems. The transparency of election means that citizens can express their intentions and where people do fraud and interference in election then there is no transparency. So the transparency of election must be followed.
Based on the fourth article of the constitution the national rules are depended on the nation and that’s why the national council (Wolesi Jirga and Meshrano Jirga) are known as legislative organizations of the nation’s intention. Until the representatives of both Jirgas do the political representation of the people in real meaning then there is another problem how the nation will be able to elect their representatives and set them what kind of standards.
Based on the 33rd article of the constitution who has the citizenship of Afghanistan can be nominated and elected. The people have the right to elect their representatives. It depends on the people, that how they want to use their rights but during election the people have to pay attention to the following things:
1. Loyalty to representative’s honesty, religiousness and nationality.
2. Representative’s reputation in the area.
3. Playing the Role of a representative in civil and political activities.
4. Information about his previous work and background.
5. Have ideals to the country and people.
6. Should have awareness of citizen problems.
7. Asking for the people rights in Wolesi Jirga with full confidence.
8. Considering votes as a nation trust.
9. Keeping Candidate’s political and educational knowledge in mind.
There are a lot of points if the nation keeps in mind while they are electing their representatives. The elections give us the opportunity of the previous representative’s work and judgment so we should elect someone who wants to help the nation in real meaning. During the elections the people should pay attention to the fraud and along the democratic system we should also have transparent elections. The participation of the people in election means that we are reinforcing our political partnership with the government so let’s use our votes with our national and conscientious responsibilities.
