shamiTexas, Feb 9, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Farouk Shami, the Democratic businessman, has showed some ray of hope in these current times of crisis. Running for the post of the Governor, he has promised that if elected, he would be creating about 100,000 new jobs. He also claimed that he would be making electricity free for all, and also that he would be enacting a moratorium on the death penalty. The declarations were made in a verbal match between the two candidates running for the post of the Governor, Farouk Shami and Bill White, the Democrat who had formerly been the Mayor of Houston for three consecutive terms.

A businessman specially known for the hair care products that he has introduced to the United States, Farouk Shami claimed in his arguments in the debate that he specializes in creating jobs. He promised that if he is elected the governor of the state of Texas, he will make sure that every citizen worth his salt has a job to speak of. In fact, so confident was he about his ability to ensure jobs for every Texan that he promised to pay $10 million to the state if he failed in his endeavor.

Farouk Shami also held a firm stand on the matter of the death penalty moratorium. He confessed that he felt that a huge number of people are executed in the United States every year, and often without proper conviction of their guilt. He said that it led to a lot of “innocent people” being put to their deaths every year, and maintained that he would not go along with the execution sentence unless he was absolutely certain of the necessity of the action.
