- Through: participation in the electoral process and to exercise the right to vote fundamental in a democracy such as ours, bearing in mind that if you don’t vote someone else in office. This is the question: if we open a hand in choosing a position, how can we talk about qualities and flaws?
- After: the supervision of the charge of the candidates elected in order to perform its mandate with consistency, as what we promised during election campaigns. We need to keep in mind: a good employee is the one permanently evaluation allows to show the best performance.
