Is there any trustworthy politician in your country?
I've been in this wonderful country of Nigeria since I was born and one thing that has made my stay in this country worthwhile is not because of good leadership, but as a result of the hospitality of most of the tribes in Nigeria.

We are the set of people that, irrespective of bad leadership, still have smiles on our faces. From one president to another, promises made during elections have not been met and that has made me lose trust in most of these politicians.

In as much as I don't have trust in most of our leaders here in Nigeria, I can't conclude for other politicians in other climes. So, how trustworthy are the politicians and leaders in your country?

The politicians and leaders in my country(Italy) are really bad. Like I said in another debate, other countries laugh at us and If you Google Berlusconi you'll laugh too. The media nowadays keeps pushing an agenda against immigrants and everyone is racist. Everything is really bad over here.

I seriously don't think that your country's situation is worst compared to what is obtainable in Nigeria. Can you imagine a country being without its president for more than 6 months? He is sick, critically ill but resign, no he won't. Stayed in Britain for months wasting our nation's wealth on hospital bills. If it were United States of America, they would have invoked the 25th Amendment immediately and have him replaced.

I think there are just too many politicians all over the world that are just not trustworthy or truly for the people. In the United Kingdom, we don't really have any truly bad politicians like some other countries especially ones like Nigeria where they are just corrupt. Nigeria could be one of the most powerful and richest countries in the world if they had some honest and proper politicians. We just tend to have ones that just lie to get voted in and just don't do anything to help the poor.

@Kingcool52 you definitely know what you are talking about, remove corruption and evil from the hearts of politicians in Nigeria, and the country would rival even some of the European countries. But selfishness and greed is what's killing and dragging the country's image to the mud.

Well in my country the trustworthy is the one who is less evil. Out of all the politicians still, Nawaz Sharif is the best in Pakistan. He might be a bit corrupt but still, cares about his people. Others are doing more worse things than he can ever do. He brought the Chinese contractors to Pakistan to get the One belt one road mission on the up. Then made the infrastructure better in big cities. then tried his level best to end the power crisis. Others couldn't even do 1% of what he had achieved. If after doing all this he eats up 5% as a commision then I am not worried by that. Becuase others have been eating 110% and not giving even 1% back to country,

Putting it as those with less evil seems to be a good analysis because there are certainly those that are a bit humane in how they treat the country's citizens they are ruling. The only problem is that the bad ones are far more greater in number that the efforts of the small good ones aren't going anywhere.

Most of the politicians are not really trustworthy in my country. The people that can rule the country in the right way and for progress are not always given the chance to participate in the main politics because of lack of enough money.

Believe me, those one whom you think that are good but because of lack of money they cannot get to political office, the tendency of them turning into what others are already is on a greater percentage. It's actually when they get into office and you see their efforts, then you can have your opinion on them.

Definitely, the chances of getting a trustworthy politician in any country today seem to be a mission impossible. It's only the poor masses that are suffering it, even after using their hands to vote these evil people into office.

I don't expect much from any politician, and even if he trustworthy now, he would't be tomorrow, so, you should never trust any body but yourself

Exactly, having high hopes on any politicians would eventually get you disappointed at the very end because most of them aren't worth trusting one bit.

I don't see any trustworthy politicians in my home country because not a single politician has done anything substantial. However, the politicians have done great things collectively. They have ended 10 years bloody conflict. They iverthrew autocratic king and established republic, then drafted a new constitution and held elections.

Collectively, politicians tend to achieve success but only for one reason, which is to save face in front of other fellow politicians. But when it comes to individual country duties, they are not bothered.

I can't help it laughing when I came across this article asking if there is any trustworthy politician in your country? And Nigeria being my country, it's going to be a lot easier to get a good person in hell fire than get any trustworthy politician in Nigeria. What most if not all of them are after is the nation's wealth and exploitation of the masses.

When it comes to politics, no one can really be sure because what we see of politicians are facades only. One veteran politician during my high school days said that you cannot survive politics if you will not play politics. That means you cannot be so strict to the letter when it comes to dealing because politicians are people and they are subject to their desires in life. Maybe that is the origin of the term “horse trading” to mean giving favors in return for a favor whether it is ethical or unethical.

And that's really bad for the people that these politicians represent have feelings and desires of good things that they expected when they choose to vote a particular politician to represent them in power. This kind of attitude even makes it hard for those that are into politics with the aim to do the right thing.

It seems that both our countries are facing almost the same problems in the political system. I hate our rules, not one of them did anything good for my country, they all steal money and sold our country piece by piece.. I don't trust in any of them, they all promise a lot of things in the campaign but in the end, they are doing nothing for us the electors!

This is the reason I keep a straight face when I see countries that try to go through a revolution. I mean that such kind of misrepresenting the people will get to a point where the people will choose to bring the political system to the dust.

This is very hard to affirm. I have seen many politicians that were considered good turn out to be just as bad as the rest. Still, I know that there must be someone out there who is good. It's just hard to find one of those and even harder to get them to work for real

It also keep me wondering as well. One thing about most of the politicians and especially those with good intentions is that it gets to a point where they will be asked to play by the rules of the political parties that they represent or risk not be presented as a candidate. I guess that's the reason some turns bad.

Even if there are good leaders there will always be people who'll have his/her name tainted in many ways. Politics is difficult you've got to have connections to be able to ride that hazardous journey. As of now I am contented with the leader we have today.

In as much as I think that some of these good politicians have their name tainted in one way or the other, it doesn't overrule the fact that I've lost hope in most of those that rule my country. Revolution is not the best way to go, but it seems that's what they're pushing us to do.

Unfortunately for the time being I don't think there are any good politicians in my country. I live in Serbia and it would seem that everyone is incredibly corrupt here. Corruption, bribery, and blackmail are rampant in the political system. It is hard to find any honest politicians because currently the system is rigged in a way where honesty simply doesn't pay off. Heck it's so bad that people claim that the current president won the presidential campaign by shifty means.

There's no way of knowing exactly for sure, but I do believe there are just a few, but I doubt that even they are above a bit of corruption. I think it's very difficult to follow the rules when you are at that position, at least where I am from, because if you did then you wouldn't really earn much and there's not really much stopping you from getting some cuts from here and there since there really is not much policing going on among government employees anyway.

There is no trustworthy politician in my country. When they run their campaigns, they promise what they will never fulfill. For the whole of the years they will spend in the office, they only make sure people live miserable lives throughout. Salaries are not paid regularly to both active workers and retirees. Some people lost their lives due to their inability to buy drugs. They only come to government offices to embezzle all funds into their pockets, not minding those who voted them in. The kind of change they used to promise during campaigns is an evil one.

I think there are some that are better than others. I think Barack Obama was pretty good, and John McCain is not bad either. I like the senators from my state. I knew some people who knows one of them personally and said that no one has anything bad to say about him..so I guess he is OK, as is his cohort. By and large though..I do not trust politicians.

I live in Brazil and here we are in political crisis for several years. Political corruption has become a great evil among politicians, and for me, it is impossible to trust any politician. I'd rather annihilate my vote in elections than vote for corrupt politicians and thieves.

Most of the politicians in my country can't be trusted. They always make big promises before the elections and once they are elected they completely ignore the citizens and are only concerned about enriching themselves. Many politicians in my country were also found guilty of corruption and money laundering. They had to resign from the parliament and I think that this is a good move but the harm has already been done.

There is no single trustworthy politician in my country. All politicians only care about themselves, not about the people. During campaigns and before elections, they can promise heaven and earth, but wouldn't fulfill anything once they get to office. It is very usual to find them in that mood. They forget everybody including the people who voted them in and concentrate fully on enriching their own pockets at the expense of the people's social well-being. While they are riding jeep, voters would be in the farm planting cassava, vegetables and other crops hopelessly and miserably.

I feel the same way too. So much that my generation has lost all interest in politics and all politic matters. At the end of the day it makes no difference who is there, the ordinary citizen always pays the price.
