Preamble

The single most important factor for the success of democracy is the quality of the voters or rather the voters must be of a certain minimum quality failing which no democratic system can operate successfully.

So it is of paramount importance to have a Votersí Code of Ethics. It is proposed as follows for the purpose of public deliberation:

Proposed Votersí Code of Ethics

Voters should, when making decisions on national or public matters,

    1 be honest, fair, diligent and courageous
    2 keep themselves informed of the main areas of the issues
    3 not be corrupt voters. A corrupt voter is one who:

      (a) votes dishonestly;
      (b) trades the vote for personal or group benefits or interests at the expense of the people and country; or
      (c) betrays the trust of his/her fellow citizens.
