By Alon Calinao Dy: The question directly by many Filipinos, who will be the next president in 2016? Will it be vice president Jejomar Binay? Or, will it be the current President Benigno Aquino III again? A dozen of politicians want to be the succeeding president, yet, who is the right one?
The Filipino people should have the power to choose who is the next president in 2016. They should be wise voters and should not be influenced by money and fame from the presidential campaigners. Remember, the power to choose good leaders is in you.
Don't complain if you put those crooks in the office. I am not saying all, but always think twice before you vote. Don't let yourselves be the puppets of some corrupt officials.
I am always frustrated when presidential election is occurring because many of these candidates are proving how good they are in front of the masses. They are liars and hypocrites. They want to be into limelight because they need something from the people -- the majority votes.
Sometimes it is really hard to vote because you have no other alternatives. Whether you like it or not, one of them is going to run the country, so better be ready for the never-ending cycle of depravity. And I think these leaders, who supposed to battle against poverty, criminal offense, and corruption, enjoyed it too.
Ever since most people are lured to vote politicians who give them temporary financial support. It appears that they may be nice at the beginning, but what people don't know some of them are the ones who corrupt people's money.
Now I ask for my countrymen, who is your presidential bet in 2016 and why? I hope and pray whoever will be the president in 2016, please let us give our support politically. It is the right time to respect the next president and let him/her do his/her task. But as citizens of this land, we don't tolerate any irregularities.
