Election Mania in Manila and the rest of the Philippines

Election mania is everywhere!

We see it in controversies that blow up right on the face of media ( TV, radio, internet and print). You see it in the series of debates, the political jingles, the media advertisement. Election is expensive. The government spends almost half a billion pesos to run the election. Candidates also would spent considerable amount of money for election paraphenelia like leaftlets , cheap envelopes, posters and banners which are just to be thrown away after the event? What a waste of money!

As bloggers, we got invites from different candidates visiting our city. Two weeks ago, we brush elbows with BAM AQUINO, ESCUDERO. It was a great way to know them and their political platforms since we were given the chance to ask question during the presscon.
