1. Election is held for the people to exercise their right to vote

2. Suffrage is valuable for every vote to vote for the candidates whom they like.

3. Election time is the best opportune season for the candidate to show their best in serving their constituents.

4. Money is aplenty during election period.

5. Those who are running for seem to be friendly, helpful and resourceful.

6. Every candidate is most seen in any social gathering, public forum, meeting, and even in funeral services.

7. No one possesses the best qualifications; everything seems to be faked.

8. Dirty tricks are common among runners and followers of the candidates.

9. Vote buying is the best strategy in winning the election, but cannot be proven.

10. Voter's life is under threat and even every member of his family's future is at stake.

11. Elected officials, after election, are being served by the people, instead of serving the people.

12. Losing candidate is unlikely to concede for his defeat for he claimed he has been tricked.

13. Election final results are always contested for anomaly.

(n.b. This is not to discount those candidates who are qualified and determined to serve the people. But unluckily they have not made it for lack of financial support, political machinery, among others.)
