Just my opinion: P-Noy’s one year.

P-Noy’s one year.

09:20 a.m.


Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino was elected as the 15th president of the Republic of the Philippines last year. And so far, his life as the chief state ruler has been as controversial as it can get. Perhaps, the shameful Quirino Grandstand Massacre, Spratlys dispute with China, his as-usual exposes against the Arroyo administration, his Porsche car, smoking problems, even his break-up with Shalani Soledad, modern KKK and a lot more were the highlights of his career so far. However, there were some good things that happened to his first year in office, just like the rate of hunger going down from arouns 20 to 15-ish percent. That’s a good sign already considering every native’s basic need is food. And I think the 4Ps of DSWD somehow did a great job regarding the matter. And just a month later since his first Ulat sa Bayan was aired, the budget for 2012 had been tackling about and its allocation for Conditional Cash Transfer of the said program were raised. RH Bill is another. It’s good thing that this time, it may not be the president for most but most of the legislators are been hardly dealing about. Though the Church had been strongly opposing that bill. Same goes to Divorce bill. After Malta legalizes the issue via a referendum, The Philippines want to come next and the last country, aside from the Vatican City to legalize divorce since cases filed for the latter had been up to around eight thousand as of last year.

In P-Noy’s State of the Nation Address last July 25, he also introduced the new Ombudsman in Conchita Carpio-Morales, perhaps another female to hold the post since the controversial Merceditas Gutierrez resigned amidst the issues involving her and ex-president and now-congresswoman GMA some few months ago. Guttierez’ resignation somehow saved her for impeachment case filed and investigated by the legislators. In fact, she’s the first ombudsman whom got a majority vote by the representatives to uphold her impeachment case to the Senate. Shameful as it seems, huh? Not only that, he exposed the PAGCOR’s anomalies in coffee drinks which costs around a billion pesos. Since then came the same issue on energy drinks and the “pabaon” to the former commander-in-chief.

However, as his first year came to an end, he still have five years to correct the nation’s miscues and to his promises to fulfill. Thee a lot more of problems in the country, and one is education. They were attempting to put up the k-12 system, colleges’ tuition fee rate’s skyrocketing again, and even the guidelines of suspension of classes which barely needs to improve. But aside from that, I think watching news can solve your needs for information. And, oh. How about passing the Freedom of Information Bill, please?

My take: I am not as good as any aspiring political analysts to say this, but based on the news that I have read, heard and watched from the archives to present and also dealing with a lot of people whom were the employees of the government, he still needs strong POLITICAL WILL. He’s doing good so far. And we’re still watching for you for the next five years so please, be consistent and if you got a case on your love life even if you are a public figure, do manage to keep it private. That’s it.
