SAY NO TO ABSTAIN

It just can be counted that the general election will be coming in less than a month. There, the people of Indonesia will be able to elect their representatives. It seems that almost the entire participant has been ready welcoming that five years agenda. The General Election Board (KPU), people living in urban as well as rural society, and and the candidates, of course. Now how about us? It is such a trend that many people of Indonesia like to be abstainers.
In fact, the number of abstain in 2009 reach until 39%. That was the highest number for the last ten years. How about the fake of this year’s election? Will it break the record in the 2009? It absolutely depends on the people as the voters.
Deep in my mind I used to wonder why people chose to abstain. Basically, there are a number of reasons people chose to abstain. From the technical reasons like the in accurate voters’ list until the people’s incredulity upon the prospective representatives they will elect.
On the one hand, it is stated that the available cadres have less capability so it is not reasonable to choose them. Moreover, most of dignitaries are corrupt. But if we just think one more single time, it happens that man have strengths and weaknesses. So, why not we just elect the one who has the most advantages then take a chill and positive thinking? In hope, those who we voted are the best ones.
Besides, according to my own opinion, I do disagree on abstention. Don’t all the people of Indonesia wish this country to be better? Well, by voting at least we have tried to help Indonesia elect the best leader, even though the work is not well enough sometimes. How about the abstainers? I do believe they also wish Indonesia to be better. But by abstaining they exactly have wasted chance to elect their best own leader. Furthermore, when people choose to abstain, it can make the election estimation swelling up because the election will be held more than one turn.
Indonesia desires a leader to set up this country, if we don’t choose him, who will lead us? Another country? Isn’t it bored being colonized? Abstention won’t make the government grow better. By participating in the election, at least there is a possibility for the government grows better. Choose the best of the best ones. Let’s think one more single time which can help Indonesia more to be better, shall we?
