Voters today appear to be ready for new politics, butPHL politics still remains just at the doorstep.
Unknowingly, voters in 2010 who ushered in Aquino havebeen in constant search of new political names...of the newpolitical DNA. Case in point, the anti-Epal movement sham-ing trapos has been successful in its campaign. The cam-paign has been very successful that even COMELEC em-braced the advocacy with the release of COMELEC Resolu-tion No. 9615 last Tuesday.I salute the COMELEC for ensuring candidates in the forth-coming elections come May 13 not to kill trees, litter thegrounds, trash water systems with plastics where plastic islocally banned, and flood the airwaves with too many TVCsand RCs. At last, COMELEC is doing its job! The sameCOMELEC removed a total of 75 nuisance candidates fromits list and so with nearing a hundred Partylist organizationsthat made a mockery of the Partylist system.From Breakout Nations to Start Up Nation to Why NationsFail, when we look at the PHL, the risk has always been po-litically based. Tweaking the now famous mantra, indeed inour case, it's politics, stupid!
