Projects that help the poor in various aspects is seen as the greatest way a president expressed love for the country – most resonant in Region 2 and the least resonant in Region 1.
A president that is selfless and performs his/her sworn duties for the country’s improvement is seen as the greatest expression by a president of his concern for the country. Looking after his/countrymen in need and looking after him/herself, managing the interest of the country, managing his/her conduct are the respondents’ description of a caring president. This is more pronounced in Regions 2 and 4A, in contrast to opinions of those from CAR and Region 5.
