Redeeming the Sins of their Fathers?
Let's be fair.
If children take over their father's constituency it may be a good or bad thing, depending on the circumstances.
In some rare cases the children may possess better character and higher qualifications than the parents.
In most cases the children may just be a proxy for their fathers and it will be the "Same Old, Same Old." Don't expect any changes except that things will deteriorate with more energy and fervour.
I would also worry about the local party organisers. Suppose the retiring MP has served for three terms. Don't tell me that during those 15 years or less, he was not supported by loyal supporters? It shows that the party has not developed its members for leadership roles.
Is politics meant to be the new royalty where people can inherit power without proper credentials?
DAP Campaign Song - excellent!
