Kotter Change Steps for Political Change

Since I learned the 8 steps change approach of Kotter, I've started following them in my business initiatives and I noticed that although not easy to do, it leads to success for sure if they are faithfully executed.
I've started a reflection now with some friends on how we can use the same steps to bring change in politics. I'm leaving in a country where we had 2 presidents in 50 years and the social climate is not the best we can have and there is definitely a need to change.
I think the challenge is not the same and since we are talking about a country now, which is obviously bigger and more complex than a company. Therefore finding solutions for each step becomes more complex.
Do you have an idea on how these steps can be applied to the scale of a country?
