Political parties are often a social phenomenon and political parties are all about making a statement.
But as a woman politician, you are also a political leader and have a stake in making sure that your voice is heard.
You have a role to play and you have to speak your mind.
With the support of the media and the public, you have a voice.
You are part of the fabric of the society, you must not forget that.
It is an important moment in time.
But we also have a responsibility to speak out.
In this case, we were part of a campaign, but we also want to make it clear that we are political, that we have a political role.
We want to do our part in making a change.
In a way, the challenge for us was to have a message that would reach people and that would be heard.
At the end of the day, it was not about what I want to be doing with my life.
It was about changing the world for the better.
That was the message.
This is why I decided to be a politician.
I have always wanted to be the face of the party.
This was not a decision that was made for me.
I had to think about it.
This campaign has changed my life for the worse.
What I would like to say to the people of the country, I think I need to make a personal apology.
I am not an activist, I do not have a platform and I have not given my opinion to the media.
This has not happened.
I can be the best that I can.
But it has come at the cost of my life, my career and my family.
I would love to have been a political commentator for a long time.
I believe in what I do and I do it in a spirit of love and in a heart that has always been there.
The political party is not just about a party or a campaign.
It also has a message.
If it is about me, it’s about me.
This party does not make a statement and does not speak on behalf of all women.
What this party stands for is that we should have the right to vote and to have the vote be taken in the most democratic manner possible.
It says we need to be in the public eye, in the streets and in the Parliament.
The media, the public and the media do not speak for us.
They only speak for themselves.
If we want to change things, then we have to be heard and to be listened to.
I want everyone to know that the politics of political parties is a reflection of our society.
This should be a matter of great concern for all of us.
The people want to see the politicians speak for them, not for them.
The country does not need more political parties.
It needs more leaders and more people to be involved in the democratic process.
The only way to bring about change is to start from the bottom up.
We must change the political system so that all of our voices are heard.
