Define corruption

Political corruption is the use of legislated powers by government officials for illegitimate private gain. Misuse of government power for other purposes, such as repression of political opponents and general police brutality, is not considered political corruption. Neither are illegal acts by private persons or corporations not directly involved with the government. An illegal act by an officeholder constitutes political corruption only if the act is directly related to their official duties.

Vote wisely this coming election, please refresh your mind from the issues that had been raised to every candidate. Don't just listen, think and analyze. This will help us choose the right leader of our nation thus to avoid corrupt officials or candidates. Don't be mislead by their platforms. Sometimes they just use their projects to steal from us.
