SINO ANG DAPAT TUMAKBONG PRESIDENTE SA 2016?

"Huwag bumoto ng ampaw." Ito ang makahulugang paalala ni Pangulong Benigno Aquino III sa publiko kapag pumili ng mga susunod na lider ng bansa sa susunod na halalan sa 2016. Bagaman dalawang taon pa bago ang nabanggit na halalan, ilang pangalan na ang lumulutang na gustong mahawakan ang pinakamataas na posisyon sa bansa. Isa ba sa kanila ang manok mo o may iba kang nasa isip na kandidato? Sina VP Binay, DILG Sec. Roxas, Sen. Revilla, Sen Cayetano, at ang kanidato mo. Sa dinaluhang pagtitipon ni Aquino sa Hope Christian High School sa Maynila kamakailan, binigyan-diin ng pangulo ang kahalagahan na may "laman" at hindi "ampaw" ang mga dapat na maging lider ng bansa. "Sino ba yung talagang may laman at sino ba yung ampaw? Yung ampaw baka matutuwa tayo sandali, pero after 10 minutes gutom na tayo dahil wala ngang laman," paliwanag ni Aquino. Sa isang hiwalay na pagtitipon, sinabi naman Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago na magandang pagkakataon ang 2016 elections na muling bumuto ng babaeng pangulo. Unang naging babaeng lider ng bansa ang namayapang si Corazon Aquino (1986-1992), at sumunod si dating pangulo at ngayo'y Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (2001-2010).

(ALSO) Aquino to public: Learn to sacrifice

If Jesus Christ was able to sacrifice himself, the people should also be willing to make their own sacrifices. That was the gist of President Benigno Aquino III Lenten message this year.
“Bilang Kanyang mga tagasunod, nawa’y maging handa rin tayong tumanggap ng sarili nating mga sakripisyo,” Aquino said in the message released Wednesday. (As his followers, we should always be ready to make our own sacrifices.) The President said the Holy Week is the time to recognize Jesus Christ’s sufferings, His triumph over temptation, and His ultimate sacrifice – offering His life for the salvation of mankind. “Hinarap Niya ang mga kalbaryo upang mabigyan tayo ng pagkakataon sa buhay na walang hanggan,” Aquino said in the two-minute video shot at Rizal Hall in Malacañang Tuesday.

President Benigno Aquino III will escape this Holy Week to his customary “resorts”—his family’s home on Times Street and his bachelor’s pad by the Pasig River or Bahay Pangarap. In an interview during a break in his inspection tour of transport facilities, President Aquino said he would spend Holy Thursday with his family for the Visita Iglesia, a Catholic tradition of visiting churches. The President said they would have another family gathering on Easter Sunday. In between, the President said, he would go on his usual retreat. “Just the usual, either at Times Mountain Resort in Quezon City or at the Pangarap River Resort, that is where I’d stay,” said the President.
The President spent Wednesday afternoon checking the mass exodus of Holy Week travelers from the capital by plane or ship or bus at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminals 3 and 4; North Passenger Terminal Complex, Manila North Harbor, Tondo, Manila; and bus terminals of Five Star Bus and JAC Liner on EDSA in Quezon City. He was accompanied by Philippine National Police Director General Alan Purisima, Transport Secretary Joseph Abaya, Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson, Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas II, and Metro Manila Development Authority Chair Francis Tolentino.
As this developed, President Aquino appealed to the public to go easy on the use of air conditioners especially during the peak of summer next month to lessen the load on Luzon’s depleted energy reserves.READ MORE...

Sino ang mga dapat tumakbong presidente sa 2016 national elections?

MANILA, APRIL 21, 2014 (GMA NEWS TV) "Huwag bumoto ng ampaw." Ito ang makahulugang paalala ni Pangulong Benigno Aquino III sa publiko kapag pumili ng mga susunod na lider ng bansa sa susunod na halalan sa 2016. Bagaman dalawang taon pa bago ang nabanggit na halalan, ilang pangalan na ang lumulutang na gustong mahawakan ang pinakamataas na posisyon sa bansa.

Isa ba sa kanila ang manok mo o may iba kang nasa isip na kandidato? Sina VP Binay, DILG Sec. Roxas, Sen. Revilla, Sen Cayetano, at ang kanidato mo.

Sa dinaluhang pagtitipon ni Aquino sa Hope Christian High School sa Maynila kamakailan, binigyan-diin ng pangulo ang kahalagahan na may "laman" at hindi "ampaw" ang mga dapat na maging lider ng bansa.

"Sino ba yung talagang may laman at sino ba yung ampaw? Yung ampaw baka matutuwa tayo sandali, pero after 10 minutes gutom na tayo dahil wala ngang laman," paliwanag ni Aquino.

Sa isang hiwalay na pagtitipon, sinabi naman Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago na magandang pagkakataon ang 2016 elections na muling bumuto ng babaeng pangulo.

Unang naging babaeng lider ng bansa ang namayapang si Corazon Aquino (1986-1992), at sumunod si dating pangulo at ngayo'y Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (2001-2010).

Wala pang pangalan na inirekomenda si Aquino kung sino ang nais niyang maging manok ng kanilang partidong Liberal Party (LP) sa 2016 elections. Pero minsan nang nabanggit ni Sen. Franklin Drilon, vice chairman ng LP, na maaaring si Interior Secretary Mar Roxas ang kanilang maging pambato sa panguluhang halalan.

Samantala, ang oposisyong grupo ng United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), may posibilidad na si incumbent Vice President Jejomar Binay ang maging manok sa 2016 presidential race. Habang si Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, ng Nacionalista Party (NP), nagpahayag na rin ng interes na tumakbong pangulo ng bansa.

Bagaman nasasangkot sa kontrobersiya ng pork barrel scandal, kasama rin ang pangalan ni Sen. Bong Revilla Jr., ng Lakas-CMD, sa mga posibleng pagpilian sa panguluhang halalan.

Basbas ni PNoy

Ayon kay Iloilo Rep. Jerry Trenas, malaking bagay pa rin ang basbas o suporta ni Aquino para manalo ang isang tatakbong pangulo ng bansa sa 2016.

Taliwas sa paniwala ng iba na kumukupas na ang endorsement power ni Aquino dahil sa mga kontrobersiya sa gobyerno nito, sinabi ng kongresista na higit na marami pa rin ang naniniwala sa kakayahan ng pangulo.

Sa panayam ng media noong nakaraang linggo, nagbabala si Senator Sergio Osmeña III na posibleng mawala ang endorsement value ni Aquino sa 2016 kung hindi nito tutugunan ang mga problema ng bansa.

Tinawag pa ng senador na "matigas ang ulo" ni Aquino at "awful manager."

"We're not going to overthrow or what not. However, he's going to lose much of his endorsement value in 2016. You know, you have to ascribe or assign a certain value to the endorsement by a sitting president even if he is the outgoing president," ayon kay Osmeña.

Pero hindi naniniwala si Trenas sa pananaw ng senador, ginawa niyang halimbawa ang patuloy na pag-angat at pananatiling malakas ng ekonomiya ng bansa sa kabila ng mga kalamidad na tumama sa Pilipinas nitong nagdaang mga taon.

"President Aquino's endorsement power will definitely have a positive effect on his candidates in the 2016 elections. I don't subscribe to claims that his popularity as a leader has diminished and his endorsement power is a kiss of death," pahayag ni Trenas.

Dagdag pa nito, "I think that with his great success in managing our economy and his extra-ordinary commitment in fighting graft and corruption especially those involving powerful political personalities, Pnoy's endorsement is almost a guarantee for victory."

Binigyan-diin pa ng kongresista na dapat tandaan umano na sa ilalim ng liderato ni Aquino naganap ang pinakamatinding kampanya laban sa katiwalian sa gobyerno, at ang modernisasyon ng Armed Forces of the Philippines at Philippine National Police.

Sa talumpati ni Aquino sa dinaluhang pagtitipon sa Maynila, ginawa niyang halimbawa sa pagpili ng lider ang sitwasyon ng isang eksperto na pabago-bago ng desisyon.

"Ako mahihirapan akong sundan yung ganoon, ano. Hindi maliwanag kung saan niya tayo dadalhin dahil mukhang pati siya hindi niya alam kung saan pupunta," paalala niya. -- RP/FRJimenez, GMA News

MANILA, Philippines – If Jesus Christ was able to sacrifice himself, the people should also be willing to make their own sacrifices. That was the gist of President Benigno Aquino III Lenten message this year.

“Bilang Kanyang mga tagasunod, nawa’y maging handa rin tayong tumanggap ng sarili nating mga sakripisyo,” Aquino said in the message released Wednesday.
(As his followers, we should always be ready to make our own sacrifices.)

The President said the Holy Week is the time to recognize Jesus Christ’s sufferings, His triumph over temptation, and His ultimate sacrifice – offering His life for the salvation of mankind.

“Hinarap Niya ang mga kalbaryo upang mabigyan tayo ng pagkakataon sa buhay na walang hanggan,” Aquino said in the two-minute video shot at Rizal Hall in Malacañang Tuesday.
(He faced intense suffering to give us the chance to live forever.)

The President likened the challenges faced by Christ to that of his “Tuwid na Daan (Straight Path).”

He reminded the people that they should also be ready to accept their own sacrifices.

“Tiyak naman pong lahat ng ating pinaghirapan ay may positibong ambag para sa ikabubuti ng mas nakakarami,” he said.
(Definitely, our hard work will have a positive contribution that will benefit the majority.)

The President’s statement was released amid complaints on the traffic and public transportation in Metro Manila, as well as threats of possible brownouts because of the tight energy supply during the summer. Aquino’s spokespersons also recently received flak for alleged insensitive remarks on commuter woes pertaining to the Metro Rail Transit (MRT).

During the last part of the video message, Aquino said that the people should be humble, caring and righteous not only during the Holy Week.
“Ang ginagawa nating pagninilay at panalangin ay paghahanda lamang para sa isang buong buhay ng pagsunod sa halimbawa ni Kristo,”
(Our contemplation and prayers now are only preparations for a life devoted to following Christ.)

MANILA, Philippines—President Benigno Aquino III will escape this Holy Week to his customary “resorts”—his family’s home on Times Street and his bachelor’s pad by the Pasig River or Bahay Pangarap.

In an interview during a break in his inspection tour of transport facilities, President Aquino said he would spend Holy Thursday with his family for the Visita Iglesia, a Catholic tradition of visiting churches.

The President said they would have another family gathering on Easter Sunday.

In between, the President said, he would go on his usual retreat. “Just the usual, either at Times Mountain Resort in Quezon City or at the Pangarap River Resort, that is where I’d stay,” said the President.

The President spent Wednesday afternoon checking the mass exodus of Holy Week travelers from the capital by plane or ship or bus at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminals 3 and 4; North Passenger Terminal Complex, Manila North Harbor, Tondo, Manila; and bus terminals of Five Star Bus and JAC Liner on EDSA in Quezon City.

He was accompanied by Philippine National Police Director General Alan Purisima, Transport Secretary Joseph Abaya, Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson, Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas II, and Metro Manila Development Authority Chair Francis Tolentino.

As this developed, President Aquino appealed to the public to go easy on the use of air conditioners especially during the peak of summer next month to lessen the load on Luzon’s depleted energy reserves.

“Kapag hindi natin pinagtulungan, talagang kakapusin tayo sa kasalukuyan (If we don’t help each other, we will really suffer a shortage in the present),” said President Aquino.

President Aquino said he was briefed Tuesday on the power situation by Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla who warned that the power supply could hit critical levels next month.

“And his most urgent request was in our use of airconditioners, if it was possible that we set the temperature level at 24 (degrees centigrade) instead of 19, that would make a big difference,” said the President who noted an air conditioner needed 3,000 watts to run for a day or 16 times more than the 180 watts used by a refrigerator.

The President blamed the unscheduled breakdown of power plants (Masinloc plant in Zambales and Pagbilao plant in Quezon) over the past few weeks for the drop in power supply. He said the government had decided to continue with the scheduled preventive maintenance (of the Malampaya power plant) rather than risk pushing these plants to the limit and suffer unplanned breakdowns.

This is why, the President said, the government has opted to deploy the Malaya power plant in Pililia, Rizal which was built primarily as a stand-by power source when big power plants of more than 600 megawatts get off the grid.

President Aquino was still hopeful that Luzon would avoid brownouts especially if power consumption would not rise so much during the torrid days of summer.
