People who are undecided or unsure of their choice sometimes ask me, when they pass me, who they should vote for. It is not my role to suggest a choice. As I like to popularize political issues, I thought I would offer you the simplest guide possible.
I worked from the main themes of the parties, ideas hammered out by the leaders on a daily basis. I have tried to summarize their intentions in a few direct and succinct statements. Hope this tool will help your choice.
