Thank you so much to Ms. Anna Aquino for the Photo…
Less than one month and Filipinos need to choose again, who will be the candidate’s seat for the positions.
There are so many campaign materials and so many ads that truly encouraging the voters to choose them. For some they are showing long list of achievements and qualifications on their previous position and works. There are some endorsed by celebrities, influential people and politicians, religious organizations, student body, government and non-government organization and party list..
With all of those influences and strategies, how are we Filipino people pick our list? What would be the bases and traits of our candidates should possess? Don’t let our judgment affect by those campaign materials and propaganda. Me, as a voter, as one of ordinary Juan, my pick should be a person who have:
1.) Determination and dedication to serve the people no matter he/she will facing who ever in the name of truth and justice.
2.) He/ She can stand on his/her decision and principles, not biased, not easily influenced by other opinions and influences.
3.) He/she have heart and knows what Filipino people truly needs, who have strong faith and believe in God, who strongly believe the value of family, have a greater respect of human rights and democracy.
4.) He/she knows how to be a real public servant, respectful, courteous, good taxpayer, selfless and hardworking. Who willingly be transparent with all information should be shared publicly, knows by heart his/her duty to Filipino people with or without camera, not too emotional or radical.
5.) Have a concrete and clear program to follow, have long-term solutions to social, economical, and political issues, consistent, and strongly hold for the interest of many.
I know there are some who felt satiated because they feel that there are no changes in our country in terms of better life, more jobs, educational system, laws need to pass and implement, graft and corruption, agricultural problems, health and medical issues, waste management, poverty, hunger and a lot more.
However, are we going to surrender to achieve our dream for a better country? Let us use this opportunity to choose the right person who will serve for the best interest of Filipino people.
Is our pick should be rich and famous, coming from a family of politicians, graduated from Law School, master in English, ordinary candidates, or ordinary people? It is in our hands, your hands, our choice, your choice, to choose, to make changes.
Let us Vote…
