Evaluating and grading governance

By

To say that governance in our country leaves much to be desired is one great understatement. This is true for both the national government as it is for local government units (LGUs). At the national level, principal offices of the executive, legislative and judicial branches are periodically covered by the opinion surveys of SWS and Pulse Asia. These serve to update the citizenry on the approval and trust ratings of the respective heads of the three branches of government.

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.

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.

Can the wealthy lead?

In its Jan. 11 issue, the Inquirer reported that, based on their 2012 statements of assets, liabilities and net worth, almost all our lawmakers are well off. Of our 282 legislators, 217 are worth P10 million or more each, and only seven have less than P1 million each. The lowest net worth among the senators is P4 million; the rest have much, much more.
