WikiPangako keeps track of politicos’ promises
Ernest Calayag, founder of WIkiPangako

Promises. Promises. And more promises.

Now, it seems giving endless promises has become the norm – and the bane – of the Philippine political spectrum, especially during elections.

Every three years, and sometimes even before that, politicians from the municipal to the national level try to woo and win over voters by promising them jobs, electricity, water, housing — nearly everything under the sun that they can think of.
