Battling for Credibility
Philippine elections have always been marred by massive cheating or dagdag-
bawas. Most Filipinos are used to this kind of scenario but some however
still believe that our elections can be made credible.
Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the John J. Carroll Institute on Church
and Social Issues in its special election issue titled Election 2007 aims to
shed light on the otherwise tumultuous issues that surround this coming
election. The issue features articles on voting behavior and platforms to be
prioritized for poverty alleviation, first time voters, civil society
organizations which act as poll watchdogs and an article on how some local
leaders won and have kept their promises to their electorate. One of the
articles titled Necessary Changes, highlights the steps that COMELEC and
organizations like NAMFREL, PPCRV and SLB will take to ensure the credibility
of the coming election.
