    COMELEC, as the country’s authority on the elections should be fair and independent from the current Admin. Sa lagay nito eh parang lumalabas ang pagka-bias ng mga tao sa COMELEC. Kung dito pa lang bias na kayo eh paano pa kaya kapag halalan na? Maasahan ko ba kayo na patas ang treatment ninyo sa mga kandidatong kaaway ni PNoy?

    If all government officials are like Mitos Magsaysay, the private sector will be a very willing partner in development and the Philippines will truly be a progressive country. Nothing can beat a SINCERE and SELFLESS PUBLIC SERVICE. Number 23 will be No. 1 in my ballot this coming May 2013. God bless you for all the good work that you do.
