Today I must talk about the elections of mayors in our country. Actually I consider that this fact has a big importance for the people of the country, but I think that don’t have the same importance to me.
The last week was the municipal election and I didn’t go to the vote center to give my vote, but I spent my time working in the shop of my father during the morning until the 3 pm, and in the afternoon I was in my home speaking whit my family about the importance of the vote. The only person of my house that went to vote was my daughter. My mom and my older brother didn’t go too. Each of us have different reason and explanation for ours acts, but personally I think that the vote not is the best way to impulse a change in the society in a country like Chile. I think that the function and the objective of the democratic systems is find a representative for the people that is part of the political system, but always knows that in our country this is not a fact actually. The persons that are elected for the vote, frequently are elected because are the “least bad” and not because they are the better option that “makes me fell represented”. Is for this reasons that I didn’t vote… well, some might say: “but, if you don’t have interest for anyone, you can give your opinion vote in white or whit an abstention”. Well, they persons have the reason, but I have other reasons that I don’t want to write in this occasion to do that I did – one of this reasons is that I dislikes THIS political system, because I feel that try to make that too many different persons believe that the unique form of participate in political life is the vote, when, really, each group or person have a different form to do this -.
