FOR five elections the people of Lufa in Eastern Highlands have been electing leaders without properly assessing their competency to represent them in parliament and bring services to the people.
The people have to understand that politics and government are underpinned by complex legislations that members of parliament need to thoroughly understand.
We have seen some MPs struggle because they lack the competence and education to help them drive their agendas.
The problem lies with the people. They need to elect leaders who have both the education and experience to understand the government systems and be able to thrive in that environment.
