False electoral promises have become a general phenomenon in most countries for candidates or those wishing to obtain political gains to reach high government positions, whether presidential, parliamentary, executive, or otherwise.

False promises to voters have become the easy way to control the minds of the poor, weak, and toiling world people, which are difficult to achieve with logic and common sense. Nevertheless, sometimes the poor and vulnerable believe these false promises; perhaps they will be considered one day.

The superpowers with the financial ability to fulfill many of their commitments to their people are at the forefront of false promises. However, they need help to achieve what they promised to their people despite their financial and technological capacity to achieve their economic goals. The first obstacle to achieving these goals comes from the political vision and the extent of its difference with how to achieve the desired financial goals. Then comes the second obstacle, which is military spending and providing military aid to other countries without a certain limit, hoping for military and strategic gains in the long term, but it affects their people economically in the short time, such as entering useless wars or lavish military and financial aid to other countries, not to mention the unexpected natural disasters that It can occur at these times, which deplete the state’s resources suddenly. Finally, the third obstacle is the bad international relations with other countries, which result from unwise and failed diplomacy, which ignores the economic aspect and puts it in the back, while this aspect comes to the fore for the people.

This hinders electoral promises, making them false and not being fulfilled. The superpowers are the first accused of false promises because they can fulfill them, but they do not implement them for other reasons we reviewed previously.

As for developing or poor countries, they cannot, due to their financial and technological inability or circumstances beyond their control, achieve the aspirations of their people.
