HOW TO BE A GOOD POLITICIANS (ADUNS & MP’S)


HOW TO BE A GOOD POLITICIANS (ADUNS & MP’S)

1) BE HUMBLE
-There is no positional power.
-Be aware of how little power you have individually.
-Power is only a product of collective action.

2) BE NICE TO OTHERS
-Keep people on side, you might need their support later.

3) THINK STRATEGICALLY
-Where is The Power?
-How can i get others to agree?
-Who will back me? Create a situation where everyone gain something.

4) SPECIALISE
-Pick a topics that interest you and research it throughly.
-Become one of the experts in the Parliament on your topics
-Eventually, others will seek your point of view,publicly and privately
and this will give you considerable standing and influence.

5) HAVE CLEAR AND ACHIEVABLE GOALS
-Know what you want to achieve from the time you were elected.
-Do not try to change the World.
-Pick objectives that are measurable (This is good for your own morale)

6) UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES
-Research. If you are discussing any issue-local to international- make
sure you have all the most up-to-date information.

7) LISTEN TO OTHERS
-Do not think you understand it all. Others experience will probably be
different to yours, and they may help you to re-think your view.
-anyway in a democracy,their view also counts.

8) LEARN HOW TO SAY ‘NO” KINDLY AND WITH RESPECT.
-Sometimes this is not easy! but you might need that person’s support later..
so avoid offending.

9) UNDERSTAND YOUR INSTITUTION.
-The more you understand the rule of procedure and the traditions
of the parliament,the more you will be able to use
these to achieve your goals.

10) EARN RESPECT
-Show you respect the views and experience of others.
-Demonstrate that you can be trusted.
-Learn to recognise corrupt behaviour.
