Suddenly, our politicians talk only about the people suffering. They all talk about the lack of services, lack of electricity, the housing crisis, the unemployment crisis and the security issues. Suddenly, most of them who were gaining millions during the last four years started thinking about the financial situation of the poor families who never dreamed of earning even one million Iraqi Dinars ($850). Suddenly, many politicians started visting the rural areas and meeting the innocent poor who were begging for a visit by one of the officials to listen to them or to tell him about a sewage problem or lack of drinking water or the absence of any medical services.
This sudden grew suddenly like a big white cloud only few days before the parliamentary election. They want to convince the simple people to vote for them. They want the poor to trust them again. In return, they are promising to improve their miserable lives.
Talking to some friends and people in few gatherings revealed one fact for me. People are not naive any more. They realized and knew the political game. Big promises and speeches do not have the same old effect. People know the big promises will evaporate directly after the end of the 7th of March elections.
I hope my people would be able this time to choose the best who can save this country and its unlucky people.
