The 2016 Philippine National Election 2016 is fast approaching and only one Presidential candidate has declared his candidacy for the top position so far, no other than the Vice President of the Philippines, Jejomar Binay – and that’s because he is confident enough on how to make his country change for the better through his tested community development projects in his more than 30 years of public service.
We all know that poverty is the number one problem in the Philippines – and since experts say that poverty is only in the mind or a state of mind or a mentality, then V.P. Jejomar Binay launched an educational system that also provides skills to the students at the University of Makati. Even the Ayala Group is so convinced with this system that they implemented the same into their community service projects. However, the Liberal Party did not even know this strategy to solve the rising unemployment rate due to the graduates’ lack of skills – that they criticized the UMAK Nursing Department’s affiliation with LASIK techology.
Secondly, the number one major expense that most OFWs shoulder for their family back home is for hospitalization. V.P. Binay already has the Yellow Card benefits since he was the Mayor of Makati for OSMAK or Ospital ng Makati (Hospital of Makati). Not to mention the Senior Citizens’ benefits. These two are just few of Binay’s Political Platform. If the Philippines will have this Healthcare system nationwide like in Thailand and Australia, then the poor people will be well taken-cared of and they will have a sound mind to work smarter to ease themselves from poverty.
To add further, Binay is the only politician who’s mind is geared towards preservation of Human Rights as a specialized lawyer on that. He will never break the law despite criticisms on why he does not want to face the senate on the allegations against him – because he knew so well that it’s not the job of the senators and it’s unconstitutional. Instead, he submitted an affidavit to the Ombudsman since it’s the right process for such case. So, no Filipino will ever suffer again in defending their own rights like the case of Sultan Jamalul Kiram’s men in Sabah who were mass murdered when they tried to take back what is theirs.
Sure enough after one year of flamboyant media propaganda that aims to destroy his reputation, he still ends up victorious because no plunder or corruption case was ever filed against him but only a Complaint Affidavit to investigate further for possible evidence. Even an impeachment will not stand a chance according to Representative NielTupas, the chairman of the House Committee on Justice, from the Liberal Party himself.
