I was reading a book when i faced the sentence below.
Our national representatives tend to be better than our local ones.
What's the meaning of "tend to be better" in this sentence?
Note 1: I get the main point of it, The local representatives (e.g. local politicians) are weaker than the national ones.
But I want to translate this sentence, And the problem is that i don't find a suitable synonym for "tend to be better".
Note 2: There is a similar question here. But the explanations the users gave are not enough for me to understand and do the translation.
