Dear Lisa,
Thanks for your comments.
The core Governance issues mean to me is in lack of supply of good political human resource. many common and good citizens donot join political parties nor contest elections. Thus there is hereditary kinship , familism in political domain which leads to corruption. The sons , wifes of politicians become leaders which is not democracy.
just few thoughts and there are other governance issues too.
Therefor i feel so happy when i see u contest elections.
Take care
with solidarity
