The East Timorese are going to participate in Local Elections on 9 October 2009. The Ministry of State Administration which is delaing with the ballot papers has distributed these materials to all 13 Districts in Timor-leste
Yesterday is the last day for candidates for the positions of local community leaders to complete their respective campaigns across the country.
It was very strange and shows a new example that these Local Community leaders have interpreted the model of democracy and teachs a valuable to lesson to the leaders of national political parties.
In som villages in Aileu district the competitors campaigned in the same day and the same place without any violence or misbahviour of any sort.
"We are doing this campaign together without insulting and maltreatment of each other," said one of the candidate from a village in Aileu on last weekend.
This is kind of attitude was not shown to the community by the political parties leaders during the last Parliamentary and President elections in 2007.
There were a lot of word wars around the country since the end of May 2007 up to the end of the campaign period in that year. The Timorese leaders should learn from their communitty leaders in Aileu, Manatutu and some other Districts which adopt a new type of Democracy in Timor-Leste
