Peaceful we hold our ballot papers
Our power, our vote.
To make the great choice
That will stand proudly.
In our history.
The great decision we make.
We are responsible for.
To our country and generations unborn.
So let us all go out and make this choice.
Elections! You are great and mighty.
You make our world feel powerful.
We are the real powerholders.
Elections! You make us give and take away.
Elections! You make us determine
The fate and destiny of our rulers and Country.
Elections! We will forever cherish you!
You being part and parcel,
Of our culture and tradition.
