Government and Political Ethics

Ethics govern one’s behavior and activity. It is a principle that pertains to moral character of a person. Given the definition, ethics is essential and should really be associated with government and politics.

Although values and morals vary depending on what culture a person has, it still has a common ground, and that is to consider good and correct conduct.

Most of the time, ethical behavior of a leader or the public sector reflects on their decisions and how these decisions will impact their people. Well, it will not always be highs, definitely there will always be two parts of a decision, the advantage and disadvantages. So it also depends on how the people will take it or see it. Would they be relying on the positive side? Or give criticism because of the negative part?

Government ethics cover the honesty issues. Honesty and transparency that everyone is longing from public leaders. It is very important to always carry the principles of ethics to, of course, resist temptation and avoid crimes such as bribery, corruption, and even conflict of interest. It is because public or government officials serve the people. They are the ones who handle public funds. It is just normal for people to expect to be treated with fairness and equality. The openness that should be shown to the public will also let the public know that their leaders are doing what is right.

The bottom line is leaders should always be mindful that all the things they are going to do as public officials matter to people. People will always have a say. However, it is for the best if the perceptions of people with regards to whatever development is being implemented by the government will outweigh the negative impacts to the people. It is inevitable to have some disadvantages especially like for example hiring a professional from locol paint during rainy season, no matter how expert a person is when it comes to painting houses, there will still be some negative outcome if they are hired during rainy season. Same with the government, no matter how good their intention is, if there is an unexpected situation, there will still be some negative outcomes.
