Politics is about power. The people who lead and govern a country, however they come to be in power, therefore have a huge responsibility for the decisions they make.

All leaders, whether local, regional, national or international, can take decisions which benefit the lives of their people, for example through improving education, health care and social welfare. But at times, in order to achieve 'improvements' in their society, the decisions made can lead to financial mismanagement, corruption and even violence.

Within all politics, there are rarely any easy choices. By being efficient, open and accountable, leaders can ensure that corruption is eradicated.
