VOTE FIRST FOR THE LALIT CANDIDATE-List of LALIT candidates

29.10.2019

There are only three ways of recognizing a LALIT candidate (or candidate of any other party for that matter) on the ballot paper: 


- by the name of the party, LALIT, next to the candidates name,


- by the symbol of the party, 


- or by number, couting from a candidate whose surname starts with A down to a last one nearer Z. 


Our election mo-dord is: VOTE FIRST FOR THE LALIT CANDIDATE.


 But, remember that everyone has to vote for 3 candidates for their vote to count. Apart from in Constituency No. 1 where our headquarters are, we have either one or two candidates. We call on people to decide locally on those Independent candidates, or other non-communal and non-3-main-block candidates, to vote for, to make up the three.


  Most people vote by party symbol. They do this either because they are not able to read or read confidently enough, or because of the length of the ballot when there are so many candidates. 


  In fact, the only time when everyone in the intellectual elite recognises the fact that a large proportion of the population cannot read-and-write is at election time, when a lot of emphasis is put on the party or alliance symbol. The rest of the time, the intelligentsia lives in denial of the high rate of people not being literate.


Anyway, LALIT’s symbol is billhook and hammer crossed over, meaning working class unity – industrial and agricultural workers – with the two tools amended so as to be also a bird and a giraffe, meaning respect for our place in nature. Our name LALIT in Kreol means struggle and in Hindi means beautiful. And here are the numbers of our 24 candidates.
