Take Back our Communities
To form "Smart Voter Communities" (SVCs) in all the 5 geographical voting regions: the SVCs are to form Smart Voters networks, collect data, monitor the polls to see which candidates are most likely to win and to share/distribute related information to the Smart Voters network in their voting regions.
Jul to Aug
The results of the questionnaire shall be publicly released through various media & platforms, including those candidates who refuse to answer the questionnaire.
The questionnaire will include issues of political, social and economic nature, to which the candidates will have to make their positions clear to the voters.
By answering the questionnaire, the candidates will make public their political affiliations and stance, as well as their positions/views on the issues.
This will help to ensure that the important issues selected by the voters will be addressed by the election platforms of the candidates.
In the mean time, the SVCs will also monitor and disseminate the latest polling results to their members, thereby shortlisting the candidates in terms of their winnability.
