So is this why Aquino doesn’t want FOI law?

It all makes sense now why the Aquino administration doesn’t support the Freedom of Information (FOI) bill. Especially with President Aquino’s and Senate President Franklin Drilon’s link to Janet Lim-Napoles coming to light for all the world to see, and following revelations about Mr. Aquino’s improper release of millions if not billions of pesos to provide financial support to Team PNoy in the May 13 elections. Now I understand everything: The Aquino administration refuses to support the passage of an FOI law because it wants to hide its own misuse of “pork funds.”

Passing the election test again

By

In SWS’ view, its survey work has, again, handily passed its self-imposed periodic test of accurately anticipating election results. Our report, “SWS/BW final preelection survey of May 2-3, 2013: 9 Team PNoy, 3 UNA in top 12; 7 Team PNoy, 2 UNA safe,” announced on May 8 (www.sws.org.ph), proved entirely correct, compared to the latest actual results, official or unofficial. It correctly preidentified all winners and losers.

Election with no change

By

The nine-three result of last Monday’s Senate elections proclaims a no-change outcome. It locks the country into the iron grip of a status quo—continuity of political sterility in the second half of President Aquino’s administration, which has been hamstrung from delivering economic benefits to the Filipino masses by slogans on good governance.
