There are tensions in the air surrounding the upcoming local elections. I don't want to say too much about the nature of the tensions at this stage. I don't want to compromise myself by revealing any information prematurely, but I've been asked by prominent members of the community to stand for local elections for a certain opposition party. I have been assured widespread support and for a while now I am been told that I would be almost guaranteed election if I ran. I am currently in discussion with the details but I am considering doing it at this point , but perhaps there is too little time. There is much to consider and meetings to attend.
Should I decide to pursue this now or in the future, I'll be sure to use blogging as a format to keep in touch with people regarding the whole process.
