The next election is the most crucial election in the history of Bangladesh. After practicing 15 years of ‘bloody’ and ‘fake’ democracy, the nation is hoping to establish a more sustainable and reliable democracy in the country, which will ensure our prosperity and success. But against this inspiration, we are still seeing some corrupted, criminals politicians trying to manipulate our politics once again and hoping that their rule will come again. In this situation, the most promising thing is our fresh youth voters, who are dominating 31% of our total voting population and have the ability to change the country’s political scenario. But for them, the most challenging thing is ‘how to pick an honest, bold, patriotic and competent candidate among some corrupted criminals. For their help, I have created a ‘measurement scale’ by which we can measure the competency of a candidate.
Here I am showing my own ‘basic judgment’ for finding a suitable candidate from thousands of the beasts. Your comments or editing will be appreciated.
The total points for this measurement scale are 90. In my judgment, perfect candidates must have to achieve 75 points to get my vote. Otherwise, if I don’t find anyone with this mark, then I will go for ‘Na Vote’.
1) First I will focus on candidate’s Education. Here I will mark him/her in 4 scales.
a. Post-graduate - 15 points
b. Intermediate to graduate - 10 points
c. Below Intermediate to class 8- 5 points
