Hoping for a Credible Election in May 10, 2010
Local candidates signed the Covenant of HOPE in their promise to obtain a peaceful, orderly and credible election
People are in doubt whether the Philippines can still achieve a credible election in May 2010, others even speculated of a NO-EL (no election).
When the PNP Press Corps conceptualized the idea of holding this activity, I was told: "ceremonial lang yan....useless....wala nay Hope".
You, know, we in the voting populace should lead by example to teach the youth, that indeed, our region, that the Philippines still, can have an Honest, Orderly, Peaceful, Election.
Yes, despite Maguindanao incident.
Let's all have an active participation so that, the implementation of the First Automation Polls will yield good results....good....in terms of realising the wishes of our people.....Honest, Orderly, Peaceful, Elections in May 2010.
We in the broadcast industry, the PNP, the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) and the COMELEC challenged all political candidates to stand by the Oath of Promise.
This is, Operation H.O.P.E. aiming for clean, honest, accurate, meaningful and peaceful elections, but this will also depend on how politicians undertake the campaign and endeavor to attain victory with honor and dignity.
Let us keep this election peaceful and credible.
It is possible.
It is desirable.
It is doable.
Let us GO and DO it!
yours truly as President of the PNP Press Corps, thanking everyone for the success of Operation HOPE
