Bishops of Galicia remind voters to be discerning

.- The bishops of the region of Galicia in Spain reminded the faithful this week and “all people of good will” that the exercise of the right to vote “demands clear and reasoned discernment about policies and the different political choices.”

“With our vote we will elect those who will occupy places of government and will influence the conditions of our lives in one way or another,” the bishops said. “The sound opinion of voters is the true guardian of the moral and cultural heath of societies and nations,” they added.

Referring to candidates who called for a fair campaign, free of negative attacks, the bishops noted that politics exist to serve the person with his “transcendent demands.”  The objective of politics, they added, is “the common good, as the good of all, especially of those most in need.”

The bishops thanked politicians for their commitment to serving the public and encouraged them to strive for competence, honor, and generosity in their occupation.
