  1. I really don’t understand the big resistance against the Restoring Electoral Integrity project. One would think it would be a no-brainer to be a part of it.

  2. They don’t want to change what they are already ACCUSTOMED OF….isu ngamin ti nakaimulagatandan wenno nasursurudan. If they go for the change…awan to met pagkuartaan dan.

  3. Mananalo pa rin c Meyor in spite of Jim Paredes who I believe
    is not even a registered voter in the place.

  6. tsk, she should have shown even she does not like the program, as a mayor she is accountable of evry undertakings of her LGU.

  7. A classic example by our elected leaders why a sustainable change can hardly set off in our impoverished province. Iti napipintas nga proyekto a kastoy, our leaders should at least show their support, whether they mean it or not. They should take the lead, so that their constituents may also follow. It does not require much effort. Ngem anian aya! I suggest that the Abrenian people should strongly support this project even with the cold to no participation of our sitting officials, band together so that these hypocrites might have second thoughts, that if they don’t want change we might as well change them… As a united Abrenian people, we are capable and we can do just that!

  10. KUARTA pay laeng ti mang-decide ti resulta daytoy nga eleksyon, not anthing else agsipud ta agpapada da amin nga agtatakaw ken engrained with criminal minds. Besides, majority silent voters are poor and need extra money to buy food and other necessities in life. Bassit laeng dagiti wise voters or adda mabalinda ken adda moral conscience da kompara kadagitoy. Mas symphathetic kak kadagiti Luna ngem maabak dan sa met ti vote-bidding or buying, so they willjust expect a miracle to happen especially if they don’t employ intimidation tactics that drive out sympathy votes.

  11. This humble analysis also applies to the opposing candidates in Penarubia or anywhere else which this project/event has a very little effect or nothing at all to the less-privileged majority silent voters because of the hard fact as mentioned-above. The only way to change their mindset is to uplift their economic survival where they would no longer forced to sell their sacred votes but it seems impossible at the moment. Because of this, we have no recourse than trying to convince them of embracing christian values with bold participation of the different religious denominations that may empower or influence to do the right thing. At any rate, I’m still impressed with this project/event and urge them to continue without ceasing. Who knows, I’m might be wrong with my my ibitial assessment..

  12. Corr.: “that may empower or influence them to do the right…..
    And: “initial instead of “ibitial”

    • i agree with your observation but im very thankful that few good men are forming themselves to educate us so that the rotten system that being applied to our voters will be soon eradicated. il cross my finger>
