TOP FIVE THINGS WE HATE DURING ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN

Time for another Top Five entry. Election is nearly approaching and campaign period is currently running. Well, good thing I haven't seen or heard any tension yet here in my place but there are so many things I hate about election and allow me to list it down. First of all, this list is done subjectively and since I want this list to have a lighter tone, i excluded those common scenarios that are TOO political and things that we should hate the most including those political dynasty, and other forms of Electoral fraud. So let's start shall we. 

TOP FIVE THINGS WE HATE DURING ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN 
TOP 5 THING WE HATE DURING ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN
"FLYERS AND POSTERS EVERYWHERE"
I remember when I was a kid, we used to collect them all and we used to have fun with them but as I grow up, I started to find it a little annoying. These people (Candidates and supporters) will visit one place to another and they will start to distribute a seemingly endless supply of flyers. Receiving one or two is good enough but we used to get a bunch of them as if they want as to remember every tiny details of their face. In addition to that, posters are all scattered everywhere. They are posted one after another which cover almost the entire wall. Politicians should have taken this moderately and it has to be done the RIGHT way because you can never tell, maybe the flyer is enclosed with money to buy your votes. Tsk tsk tsk

TOP 4 THING WE HATE DURING ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN
"CRAZY JINGLES"
Jingles are good to attract attention but it becomes more annoying when you keep on hearing them everyday.  What makes it worst is when a trashy song becomes more trashy when they started to include their names LOL. In fact, during their campaign some politicians are dancing along with their very own jingles. Oh and I don't think it is necessary at all. If you are the type of person who used to dance and sing like that in a regular basis, then that is acceptable but if you are simply PRETENDING to be someone else, it is simply irritating. 

TOP 3 THING WE HATE DURING ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN
"WHEN POLITICS AND SHOWBIZ COLLIDES"


It is almost like a TRADITION that a politician will have his own celebrity endorser unless he is a celebrity himself. But of course none of these celebrities will confess that they are being paid to promote their candidates. THEY'RE DOING it for FREE as what they usually say. I don't know how effective this particular strategy is, a huge fan based maybe? Anyway, seeing them on TV or on their campaign (feels like a tour) almost everyday is simply annoying for me. They are ACTORS and their main job is to ACT people! See my point? And one thing, I don't see how much these promotion will increase much of their credibility. 

TOP 2 THING WE HATE DURING ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN
"INAPPROPRIATE GREETINGS"
It's Graduation Day! CHeers! Students will be surprised because there will be a HUGE tarpaulin outside greeting and congratulating them from such a great achievement. But wait, something is wrong, something is really really wrong. Notice when a politician greets, the tarpaulin will not showcase the real message but their names. Funny because we used to see those politicians whose names are in bold and the fonts are way far bigger than their congratulatory message.What a classic strategy indeed. Apart from the congratulatory messages, these politicians will grab all the other opportunity to showcase their names to public. 


THE MOST THING WE HATE DURING ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN
"WHEN A POLITICIAN BECOMES A POET"

 I am not pretty sure why but it seems like being a politician requires you to become a poet or someone who is always joining a declamation contest. They will try to seek for deeper and nicer words to explain their side. Of course I know for the fact that they are trying to make it formal and more respectable in front of people but again, they are pretending to be someone else. For me, if you really want to showcase yourself and prove your worth, you should show who you are and you don't have to come up with a SPIEL or a script.

How about you what are the things you hate during the election period?
