Conflicted

By

We have come a long way, no doubt, with President Aquino’s “daang matuwid” and “no wang-wang” policy and all they symbolize. But the pursuit of good governance is far from complete. So far, the focus has dominantly been on people in public service, especially those in positions of authority where having the wrong people can do the most damage. Even then, numerous people with questionable motivations remain in positions of power—some entrenched due to political entitlement in our deeply flawed political system, others by virtue of proximity to the powers that be. Cleaning up the bureaucracy to a satisfactory and irreversible level will take much more time than a presidential term of office allows. Indeed, many of us dread the very real prospect of backsliding on our governance improvements, with the possible election in 2016 of a president who may throw us back to the old ways that had perennially held us back as a nation.
