Bad manners

IT is beyond belief that any candidate would not have known the protocol of attending the formal declaration of the presidential election in which they were a running.

However, even if we were to believe that, their absence shows poor judgment, bad manners and perhaps a touch of arrogance.

Obviously, qualities the electorate were not looking for!
