    Determination/determine

    Determination of/by Members of ABC Political Party

    We, the members of the above party, determine:

    1. To be cooperate with one another within our party, and

    2. To do our best for the good of the citizens.


    Should the preposition be 'of' or 'by'?

    Are "Determination" and "determine" correctly used? Should "pledge" be used instead? Or should "Resolutions" and "resolve" be used in place of the two words respectively?


    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, emsr2d2. It was a careless mistake in the case of 'to be cooperate'.
