Rants : Election Day Blues - Deserving Candidates Didn't Make It

I feel bad . . .

. . . .that decent people with good track records in government service, like former Senator Jun Magsaysay and Puerto Princesa Mayor Edward Hagedorn didn't make it to the top 12 of the senatorial race in the recently held election, while some candidates easily won by just using the name and influence of their fathers. Sayang!

. . . .that Vice-President Binay who used to oppose the Marcos dictatorship ( I used to admire him for that ) has become the icon of political dynasty in the Philippines. His daughter's candidacy in the senatorial race didn't help lessen the suspicion on his dynastic plan. He would have more credibility and respect as a leader if he could minimize the the number of his family members having positions in the government. Sobra na apo!
