candidate leaders selection process

PRINCIPLES FOR THE SELECTION PROCESS

Candidate applications should be submitted a year before election/selection.

 

A team should work on scrutinising the applications, and interviewing relevant people and entities for verification of factual information. The reviewing team should come from a different province, so that manipulation or undue prejudice from people who know the candidate is minimised.

Reviewers should visit the village or town or district where the person grew up.

It is recommended that ten people do the research on one person, to counter check results, and avoid personal prejudice.
