  • It is really not an easy decision for you. It is different when you are inside the party compare to when you are outside the party. Not all your original plans will sail smoothly because in a party the top level (single or group) decision is the final and cannot be challenged (most of the time). Whatever it is, when you are the true you in principle all the ways, I will definitely give you my full support. All the best wishes to you in politic.
