The Day after Election Day

May 11th, 2010
The Philippine’s judgment day ended with peacefully and orderly yesterday. The Nation’s first automated National Election although have a dew glitches and problems was over-all a successful one. It was very hot on election day and there was a minor problem with our PCOS machine ( Thank God it was solved after 30 min.) , resulting in a long queue. But he long lines and the heat did not stop me and my hubby from voting. The three hours of standing just to vote was well worth it.

Personality Politics ruled our country. The reason why the son of our National Hero – Ninoy Aquino and former President Corazon Aquino won the presidency . There are far greater contender who have proven their capacity to be the country’s president like Richard Gordon, who turned a barren land of Subic to be one of the progressive city of the Philippines or Manny Villar who have served the Congress as Majority Floor Leader and have been a Senate President. Anyway.. this is democracy. Let us just pray the Noynoy Aquino will be able perform his duty well as the President of the Philippines. He should make up the 9 years wasted in Congress and Senate not passing a single Bill. I hope this time , he will use his position to tackle corruption, improvement public health, education, the judiciary and must have a control gun control policies. I Pray that his presidency will live up to what his parents dreamed of. I pray for a better Philippines under his leadership.
