Expectant of REAL CHANGE from the new PH President




By Rico Refuerzo

With the new incoming President, Filipino people will expect seismic change will be laid out across our nation to substantiate his promises for the land. We hope that those who will be part of his team will swear fealty allegiance to his presidency and to the people to whom they will be responsible for.   Let’s cross fingers that minor fracas will not elevate to a major strife within the cabinet and from his external foes who opposed his presidency.   Show our unity in helping improve our country.  Those who hate him because of his vulgarity and his pragmatic way of dealing with every facet of radicalism, inequalities and sorts of, that eats up our system of government,  set it aside and together we support our new President in executing his policies for change. 

Filipino people want a real change - A Literal Change.  We are tired of the divisiveness of politicians exhibiting extreme egocentrism always looking toward the next election, the exploitation of the process to protect their private interests, the dominance of prejudice over reason, the oligarchs-clan system of democracy, the monopoly of power shared by the moguls putting our democracy and the lives of the unfortunates at stake. Those who are less fortunate’s believe that they will have a fair share from a piece of cake and the favor will not be for the rich to get richer but opportunities will be spread out for them.  Just with the case of OFW.  It’s with the lack of opportunities in Philippines that urges them to look for opportunities abroad oblivious with what lies ahead of them miles apart from their families.  Taking risk of working abroad for a meager amount of salary is their prime option rather than seeing their families with no food to partake on the table.  OFW have cast their votes for Duterte with full confidence that with his unorthodox kind of governance will address the plight of OFW.  On Duterte’s inception of Presidency, the OFW are hopeful with his promises of bringing a significant change for OFW which will determine their decision of whether to continue their hard toil in a foreign land.  Duterte won the hearts of the lower class stratum who craves for change to be felt and hopes that they shall be prioritized who are often neglected.  Duterte should untangle the knots of the elite grabbing supremacy extracting our government’s resources with no provision for replenishment at the expense of the weak that are stronger than the nation.

Should he not accomplished his promises within the targeted time frame; let it not be an issue for us to be disappointed.  Huge responsibility is on his shoulders and with our support of his governance, together we can achieve a TANGIBLE change that we are all longing to happen that the past administrations failed to address our national concerns. It’s within our concerted effort and strict adherence to the rule of law that we can stop the proliferation of corrupt officials, the emergence of social inequalities that perpetuate discrimination and violence and other form of malfeasance. Involvement in the legislative process in advocating change is a potent move toward change.  An assurance of just governance and pro-active disclosure of official’s performance should be carried out if they want to restore the trust of the Filipino people in our government.  A President alone cannot institute change. The unrelenting support of the Filipino people is needed in carrying-out CHANGE.  Remember our future lies in our own hands and NOT on somebody else’s promises.  The new President is just one of the instruments who can provide us opportunities and its how we take advantage of it.
