Where 83.11% of respondents stated that the use of ethnic entities in the socialization carried out by the candidates helped voters to know and know the candidates. From 83.11% of the respondents, 38.51% of respondents stated that the use of ethnic entities by the candidate gave consideration to respondents to determine their political choices.
