A new party is being born, and this evolution (i.e. unification among various parties) may help bring about change.
The single issue it can be helpfully measured on for long and very long term positioning is the public education system. How will this party drive:
  • this system to the capabilities our country needs into our young people? This ties to long term competitiveness and wealth of our society.
  • this system to motivate and evolve the capability of its huge pool of teaching and managing talents? This ties to improving performance in the public service.
  • politicians to balance this with market forces and most importantly confessional religious forces in managing schools?

This issue can drive assessment of this party, or can help me find another one. That’s a good clarification and will help me think about our country’s future direction and how to contribute to it.
