      Merit Nating,

      Tenkyu long bekim toktok na sukurim tingting i go liklik moa. Bel na tingting blong yu em trupla tasol mi gat sampla hevi.

      The idea of introducing a law to sanction merit based appointments seems like an attractive option because it seems provide the redemptive hope of delivering us from the endless oppression we suffer from political interference and discrimination.

      I am however a bit sceptical not about the idea of a merit-based law to regulate appointments but more about the effectiveness of such a law. We turn to believe that if things dont work, it is because we dont have the necessary legal arrangements so we have proliferate a new set of legal mechanisms so that they could erase, eliminate and emancipitate us from an oppressive status quo. So we keep on making new laws without trying to make the new laws work for us. Laws are good and effective only if there are enforced, monitored and adjusted accorded to the prevailing circumstances of our times.

      What we might need is an extra surveillance system that keeps track of the effectiveness of laws, the rewards and retributions they offer and of their ability to retain their legitimacy as laws of some significance. Such a system can be organised through aligning sister organisations and a team of appropriately qualified and concerned professionals to share information and synergies their efforts to make our laws effective. Isolation, departmental enclaves, empires only work to frustrate an effective enforcement of the moral and legislative aspirations of particular laws.

      Em inap luk olsem bai mi pulim toktok tumas na bai sampla lain go boring long hia so mi lusim olsem. Bai mipla toktok moa sapos i gat lain laik sukurim tingting yet!

      em mi tasol
