Truck ban

By

The truck ban in Manila brought to the fore two important points: Decisions should be fully researched and openly discussed and argued before being made, and local governments cannot be allowed to make decisions that impact on the nation without agreement from the national leadership.

Binay’s politics

By

In his interview with ANC’s Lynda Jumilla the other night, Vice President Jejomar Binay said that he made clear his intention to seek the presidency in 2016 as early as when he took office as vice president—unlike Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, the presumptive candidate of the ruling Liberal Party, who, he sneered, has been “hypocritical” about his plans. Clearly, Binay wishes to project the image of a straight-talking politician who has nothing to hide. But, a statement like that is double-bladed: It also gives the impression that political ambition is all that consumes him, and that, as a public official, he has little time for governance.
