"If we all do not work together at this moment, no one will be able to prevent you - the politicians, and us - the citizens, from being drawn to utter destruction. Whoever takes over the government in the future will have to make unpopular decisions, and even though we, the citizens, are not directly responsible for this disaster, the citizens will also make a great sacrifice. will have to be done," it further adds.
PAFFREL makes 08 suggestions that they urge to pay attention to, when selecting a President and PM.
