Tomorrow (July 1st), the newly elected officials will formally take their seat of office. The winning candidates are back in Abra, after sorties abroad to celebrate their victory, just in time for taking their oath of office. This should also formally end the Elections 2013 (note: Some candidates has filed election protests and the manual recount is now going on. According to the law, all protest should be decided within 6 months of the protest)
Now it’s time for our elected officials to roll their sleeves and get to work. Enough of the thank you speeches and congratulatory words. It’s time for them to fullfil their promises (let’s hope they won’t suffer Amnesia) to our Province. And most important, It’s time to extend reconcilatory hands to their opponents. After all, it’s just politics, nothing personal.
JFK famously said “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country”. But I say Abrenians has already done their part by putting you into power. Now we ask, what can you do with that power?
