I have to say that elections, even in the most peaceful region, always make the hardest time for regional state institutions, including security structures.
We the people say it loud and clear every Election Day, in high-crime periods as well as peaceful stretches - More of our population needs to be behind bars.
In 2001-2002, I told the president that the election was supposed to take place when the war was over, at a time when we could return to peaceful life. We agreed upon that. However, I can see now that the election cannot be delayed any longer.
One of the reasons people hate politics is that truth is rarely a politician's objective. Election and power are.
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
