In this post, I am going to take you through how to write a manifesto for SRC Financial Secretary and also provide you with a sample that you can edit to create your manifesto.
A manifesto is a public declaration of policy and aims, especially one issued before an election by a political party or candidate.
Some Key Things To Note When Writing A Manifesto
- Be concise and use clear language. Avoid long, complicated words – you won’t win awards for being clever and you might just alienate important voters.
- Set out your previous experience and how this will help you if you got elected.
- Set out your goals for your time in the office and ensure they are realistic and achievable.
- Your manifesto is about you and not your opponents. Don’t waste words trying to discredit them.
- Talk about your skills that would indicate to voters your suitability for the role.
- It doesn’t have to be long- in fact, it shouldn’t be. Short and sweet works best. You’re only allowed 600 characters per section that will be displayed to voters on the website.
- Be creative and inspiring.
Manifesto For SRC Financial Secretary (Sample)
TWENEBOA KODUA KELVIN FOR SRC FINANCIAL SECRETARY
Mr Speaker, current SRC executive, honourable member of parliament, college aspirant, student of this noble institution, ladies and gentlemen.
Who amongst you has ever thought about a government without a finance minister? An organization or institution without an accountant? Or even an association without a financial secretary? What do you think such a government or an institution would look like?
I am Tweneboa Kodua Kelvin a second-year accounting student of this great institution and an aspirant for the office of FINANCIAL SECRETARY for the 2021/2022 academic year.
KNUST is a very big institution with many students who have the potential to carry on this mandate, but I would like to explain to you why I am the chosen one for this office.
Mr Speaker, managing the finance of an organization I believe is no joke. There should certainly be a person with integrity to help in that field, and unlike others, I strongly believe in ethics, principles and presenting nothing but the truth at all times, no matter who is watching or who is in charge. Therefore, here are some policies I will put in place if, given the mandate, they are: one, getting more sponsors for colleges of the University to support programs and other activities.
Mr Speaker, this is because the colleges need more funding to organize education and business-oriented programs for students of this great institution and also to increase the fund given to the brilliant but needy students in this institution.
Mr Speaker, my second policy is to increase the number of beneficiaries for the Ketoa bia nsua (KBN) fund. This is because the number of students that will be enrolled into the University for the 2020/2021 academic year will increase because of the Free education system that was introduced some years ago at the second cycle level.
Mr Speaker, boosting the finance of this body is one of my main objectives. I intend to do this, with the assistance of the whole executive body. This will be achieved by designing new souvenirs which students will be interested in to boost our finance as a body.
Look no further, for the right person is in front of you. Matter of financial nature are a very sensitive part of every association or institution, and for that matter, it needs someone with the requisite knowledge, skill, ability and competence to handle such matters.
We can’t be a victim of a financial crisis for that matter Vote Tweneboa Kodua Kelvin as your next SRC financial secretary.
