Essentially the role of the politicians continue as leaders of the community groups that they represent, however, with little need for political parties.
NO NEED FOR POLITICAL PARTIES
- politicians become leaders of one collective community group as they are informed on the needs and matters of the community
- when making decisions the prime focus is on decisions that result in the most benefit to the community.
- debate occurs in a quality environment where all the members (ex politicians) are informed and knowledgeable on the needs of the community
- without political parties there is no struggle between members for power and control
- a member that consistently provides good suggestions and shows real commitment is most likely to be elected as a leader of the group to represent them at the next higher level.
IMPROVED COMMUNITY LEADERS
- these leaders (ex politicians) will now be free to properly represent the needs of their communities as there is no need to meet party political demands
- politicians also freely participate in other groups, including those that require special skills and knowledge.
- any endorsements earned will help build their profiles which in turn will promote their chances of being elected as a leader of their community
- community leaders will thus be individuals with diverse skills and who participate in multiple groups.
BENEFITS FOR THE COMMUNITY
- when electing leaders, in addition to their speeches, the community can confidently rely on the endorsements earned by candidates.
- the needs of the community are specifically addressed by the leaders they elect as there is no distraction of party politics.
- other members of the community who have the required skills and endorsements can readily step forward to be elected as a leader.
