      The Most Important Elections

      by Editorial Team

      FOR MORE THAN 20 years, Namibians have shown low interest in regional council and local authority elections compared to the massive hype that accompanies presidential/parliamentary ones.

      This continued apathy is extremely worrying as it suggests a lack of appreciation for probably the most important government institutions in people's basic lives and livelihoods. Local authorities are the first level of responsibility for food, water, shelter and general safety and security.

      Proof is visible of how municipalities have all of a sudden heard the cry of the voters.

      Politicians have all of a sudden become passionate about service delivery in the past three months. They have given some people plots, houses and have not increased water and electricity tariffs this year simply to win over the electorate.

      Voters should take their responsibilities seriously and stand in queues to ensure that they choose leaders they believe will best deliver quality basic services throughout their five-year term; leaders committed to serving the people in their communities and regions.

      It is at local government level that residents should press their demands to have a direct say in the budget process and how their rates and tax funds are spent.

      Get your voter's cards and identity cards ready. Join the queue this coming Wednesday, 25 November 2020.

      Vote to show politicians and political parties how seriously you hold them accountable for delivering swiftly on the promise of better basic services and the security of earning a livelihood.
