A presidential candidate is either a big liar or a hilarious copy cat.

Vice President Jejomay Binay, a leading candidate for Prfesident, is now saying he will continue with PNoy’s 4Ps program and even improve on it by adding teeth to it.

4Ps is PNoy’s Conditional Cash Transfer Program that has won the accolade from international groups including the World Bank.

Before Binay’s turnaround on the value of this 4P’s or CCT to the poor sector of Philippine society, he has been attacking the program as useless waste of money while politicizing it. The Vice President accused the administration of…




Credibility in the country’s voting system again takes center stage, as former Senator Richard ‘Dick’ Gordon has asked the Supreme Court to order the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) to issue ‘receipts’ after qualified voters have cast their votes on May 9, 2016.

Earlier, the COMELEC said it is doing away with one safeguard in the conduct of honest elections, the “Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail” or VVPAT, reasoning that the issuance of the VVPAT or simply a “voter’s receipt” would delay the election and counting processes by at least five to seven minutes per voter.

THE 1987 Constitution defines natural-born citizens as those who are citizens of the Philippines from birth without having to perform any act to acquire or perfect their citizenship.

Although it was not of her own doing, questions about Sen. Grace Poe’s real citizenship is like a bad dream that keeps haunting her. In fact, it was a recurring nightmare. 

Now that talks are rife that there is a huge likelihood that Poe could take a stab at the 2016 presidency, her citizenship has become yet again a hotly contested issue.
