If allowed in politics, gambling will just be a game of betting where not necessarily the best to win. It will be a violation of democracy. The fact that no majority voice, there will be no democracy.
The aspirants will have to put no effort in their campaign to win the competition. An election gives the voters a chance to secretly speak out their hearts. This ensures that the leadership position is undertaken by the people for the people. Dictatorship will be associated more likely with the gambling process. It will be difficult to determine the results in a certain event if gambling was used. Gambling will open up a paradox of corruption in the office. The leaders who will be gambled in will have less loyalty to the people. They will have less connection to the society and thus will work towards their benefits rather than public interest. This will automatically open up corruption as they would not be sure to get back into office and thus would spend the government resources and public funds uncontrollably.
