This was a popular question and the candidates who answered it performed averagely. They really had a good idea of the question. However, a few candidates failed to answer the ‘b’ part very well. The candidates were expected to write the following points as answers to the question:

(a)        Political participation is a set of voluntary activities in which the
citizens of a country involve themselves directly or indirectly through influencing public policies and decision making

(b)        (i)         contesting elections in order to hold public office;
                        (ii)        belonging to a political party;
                        (iii)       attending political rallies and campaigns;
                        (iv)       sponsoring/donating to political parties/candidates;
                        (v)        voting during elections.
