Choosing the Chief (25 Jan 2019)


The Rural Representative Election was held in early 2019. Since 2003, the non-indigenous residents were allowed to run the Resident Representatives. The seats are not limited to the non-indigenous residents but also open to indigenous residents who have been lived in the village for over six years. This year, over 600 villages are involved in the election, electing 1540 seats, but many people living in rural villages have no idea about the requirements to be either a candidate, or a voter. The election is said to be lack of transparency after 15 years.
