given an option not to buy and carry heavy books. All information needed for every course or

these candidates have their social media sites which are less costly than putting up a website.
Long ago, election candidates needs to travel every corner of their zone to reach voters, but now,
with just one click, candidates’ message to the public can be easily delivered without spending
millions of money.
