On the right track

Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales and her team has done what President Aquino could not, but should have—suspend Philippine National Police Director General Alan Purisima along with a number of other top PNP officials, to clear the way for the investigation of corruption charges lodged against them. All this time, Purisima had seemed immovable in his post simply because of his closeness to the President, even as serious issues serve to question his conduct in office, from accepting unethical donations from big-ticket companies with business ties to the PNP to amassing properties that apparently were not reflected in his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth.

Boos and cheers are only noise

By

Partisan watchers of the governance game do so much booing or cheering that they risk believing their own noise.

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).

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.
