Politicians too often base their decisions on what will please the voters, not on what is best for the country.
The general meaning of politics is an individual who is involved in influencing public policy and decision making. Politicians should seek on both what please the voters and what is best for the country . Sometimes what please the voters is not always good for the country.
Sometimes voters want the change in their policy or in their leader, and that could hurt the country's economy and the people. In 1998, Indonesian people sought for leader-change in their country, and finally after long demonstrations and chaoses, the government decided to listen to their demand and put a new leader, but it did not go well as voters wanted. On contrary, it resulted in high poverty and the poor became poorer. This is one example on how can voters hurt the country in indirect way.
On the other hand, sometimes the voters know what is right for their country and please them at the same time. In 2009, Saudi Arabia had one of the biggest flood in its history. The people suffered, lost their families and had their home crushed. After a while when everything went back as it was. People asked for Water drainage project, but government never reacted to their demands. In 2010, the same mistake repeated itself in Jeddah and this time was worse . Rose in death toll , and people could not leave their work place. In 2009, In U.K when the government rose the Tuition fees on the students, and protesters reacted violently. This decision could effect the students in a negative way, such as, less students might join the schools next year.
Politics should seek on both solutions for what is best for the country and what will pleases the voters. Politicians and their voters most come to amicable decision otherwise this will lead to country's corruption over the years. As an example, what is going on now in Tunisia and Egypt of demonstrations and violent is because of the rolling system in their countries.
