New leadership: will they address poverty at its roots?  

Could the change in leadership mean poverty in the country will finally be 
addressed at its roots?
Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the John J. Carroll Institute on Church 
and Social Issues (JJCICSI) in its post-election issue titled “Directions, 
anyone?,” discusses how the change in leadership will affect poverty 
alleviation measures, particularly at the local level. 

Articles such as: “What Can Our New Leaders Do to Alleviate Poverty?,” tackles 
how newly elected candidates can sponsor laws and policies to help the 
poor; “Pushing Local Governments to Work for the Urban Poor,” features how 
local government units have complied with the implementation of the Local 
Government Code and the Urban Development and Housing Act; and “Knocking on 
the Mayor’s Door,” which shows us through the case of Davao City, how a city 
can prioritize its constituents’ needs.
