Where are your thought leaders?
I have covered AGMs of political parties, anchored talkshows and current affairs programs regarding politics for many years now.
I have interviewed many famous seasoned politicians and fresh young ones too.
With PRU13 just around the corner, political parties are saying again and again that those who will stand for election this time will be winnable candidates.
I have been studying the names of almost-sure & also potential candidates from both sides.
Yes, there are good ones from both sides but many brilliant ones who have great ideas and the much needed thought leadership are outside of the political parties.
And they have their reasons to stay out...
Some parties have not been able to move as fast as the change in thinking and expectations out there....
Now, how can you be strong when the talent is not in your fold?
