Elections / Referendum : Words by Gary Bodeau
“Holding botched elections to quench the thirst for power of a few politicians and to strengthen the system of exclusio is a homicide crime. The new Government must listen to the People and not to the representatives of the big international capitals.”

It is also an opportunity for the Nation to reclaim its sovereignty. We first need a broad consensus to change the Constitution before the election” said former Deputy Gary Bodeau.
