The governance rating cycle

By

SWS had two new releases on ratings of governance this week, both based on the first-quarter 2014 Social Weather Survey, fielded last March 27-30. They are the last of the series from that particular survey. Soon, SWS will begin the next cycle of releases based on its new second-quarter survey, fielded in late June. The first report, as usual, will be on public satisfaction with the President.

Private clubs and transparency

Misgovernance is commonly associated with government agencies or business corporations. Little is said or known about the lack of transparency and accountability in the running of private clubs. A case in point is the Forest Hills Golf and Country Club (FHGCC or the Club) in Cogeo, Antipolo, Rizal. This club was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in June 1995. Currently, the FHGCC has some 1,200 members who purchased Golf Club shares and/or own residential lots.

Governance requires LGU-NGO participation

I beg to differ with the suggestion that nongovernment organizations be abolished (“Abolish NGOs,” Opinion, 12/9/13). NGOs, provided that they are not bogus and have a clear mandate, are important, especially to local government units (LGUs). The NGOs in the pork barrel scam should not be identified with the NGOs duly accredited by the LGUs.
