The power of every vote

AN election is not just about political parties and leaders. It is about People’s Power. Still, many believe that their votes do not really make a difference. How wrong they can be. Democracy is also about the importance of a single vote.

The vote gives power to the powerless as argued by Vaclav Havel, the first elected president of the Czech Republic. The power to vote is a huge responsibility. An election assures democratic governance. It enables voters to select leaders and to hold them accountable for their performance in office.
