October is fast approaching and many Filipinos are waiting for the final candidates for the position of president of the Republic of the Philippines. In this year's Presidential race, several names are already making waves and these are the following: Grace Poe, VP Jojomar Binay, Mar Roxas and Rudy Duterte (tentative).
THE RACE TO THE TOP FOR 2016
Philippine presidential Election is always the most awaited part where many candidates are hoping to land in the highest position in the country. In this time, expect many promises from the aspirants. It is like watching a television drama where the cast are all doing their scripted lines to lure people to their camp and vote for him/her. From the always famous "trapo moves" to the honest ones are all here.
For this year's campaign, the voting public will be choosing among the 4 aspirants. Grace Poe, the daughter of the late actor, Fernando Poe, is eager to take the position that was stolen from her father before he passed away. VP Jojomar Binay is a classic politician. From a mayor position to the vice presidency was simply amazing feat for this man. His record as mayor in Makati City is full of charms and scandals of corruption. These issues are now being address to him and once this guy wins the bag, I don't know whats next. Mar Roxas. Another presidential bet. The former DILG secretary and once hailed as Mr. Palengke, is now coming back from his loss last election when the current VP won against him. Now he want the bigger role. But the problem is he is not doing well in the current surveys. His palengke charm is not doing well this time. Rudy Duterte, the current mayor of Davao City is one big contender. Rudy Duterte has not yet shown any signs of interest in the position but many are longing and waiting for his decision. Davao City is hailed as the safest city in the world right now because of this man's political will for change. His ideas and desire for country is admirable.
In the coming days, expect more election related moves from these people. The 2016 Presidential Election is nearing and many are on the watch for these potential candidates for the election.
