Bonjour. Mabuhay.

As if you don’t already know, the salt that grinds on the injuries of our nation somehow is rooted on the incompetence of some people whom we have entrusted with the facilitation of our systems.

Kelan pa kaya tayo makakuha ng mga leaders na one step ahead kung mag isip? Kahit hindi na three years ahead, kahit na 3 months ahead lang. Is that too much to ask?

As usual, it’s pass the blame game season once again. Read on my fellow country men…….


COMELEC blames National Printing Office for delivery delays

MANILA, Philippines—Delays. Delays. Delays.

Saying that it was also dissatisfied with how the barangay elections were held, the Commission on Elections on Monday blamed the delay in the delivery of election materials for the postponement of the elections in many areas of the country, particularly in the Bicol region.

Comelec chairman Jose Melo said the delivery of election supplies was delayed in turn due to earlier delays in the printing of ballots by the National Printing Office and the delays in the bidding for the election materials.

He added that areas that did not hold elections on Monday will still be on public holiday Tuesday so that voters could still cast their ballots.

Even President Aquino has said he was also dissatisfied with how the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) polls were conducted.

“He’s not alone,” Melo said in a press briefing. “It’s not 100 percent so we are not … We want of course to have 100 percent but (still) as it is, it is not failure [of elections].

“We are not satisfied in the sense that the bidding was a little delayed and then the NPO did not perform up to par because their printing presses are not very modern,” Melo said.

“[The President’s opinion] is personal. That is up to him but we may share that dissatisfaction,” he added.

Melo said the bidding was delayed because Congress was not able to immediately decide whether the barangay and SK polls should push though this year.
