I can't see any good reason for the Chief Minister election to be a secret ballot. The main reason usually given seems to be one of embarrasment if someone ends up having to work under a CM that they didn't vote for, etc.
I say that if these people can't put personal isssues aside, then they shouldn't be in the house.
Any CM candidate who can't handle people who may have voted for another candidate should NOT be putting themselves forward for the job. Any States member who's too ashamed to let the public know who they vote for? They don't have the courage to deserve their seat in the chamber.
Will we ever have open and transparent government when this kind of BS is going on?
