Hindi na sa akin mahalaga kung sino ang magiging pangulo, Duterte man o sino man. Makipag-cooperate na lang sa isat-isa, mas mahalaga pa rin sa akin ang individual effort at vigilance ng lahat, at kung may magandang plano man suportahan na lang, pero maging alisto pa rin sa abuso. Matuto sa nakaraan, huwag papadala sa mga palabas ng colosseo kumbaga.

^ That's the good thing about US gub'ment. During campaign and election period the parties are at each other's throats, but after leaders are elected they at least have a more or less unified front. More unified than what happens here anyway.

In other news, PSE up 183 points today!

Market jitters mainly due to peace and order situation with the elections.

We don't give the people in the COMELEC enough credit.
come on Toshi!

didn't vote for DU30 but i'm excited for his presidency.  the fact that it's Du30 and Leni leading the top 2 positions reflects the fact that a lot are just sick and tired of the usual elite politicians running the show.

^ i dont think so. Our multi party system sucks.  We elect leaders that has no support of the majority.

Maganda sana kung meron tayo "run-off" or "two-round" voting where the top 2 candidates who did not get a clear majority or a rather tight race have another go.

I wouldn't say majority.  There were more people who didn't want him to win.

He's now cleaning up his act, which is rather disconcerting considering the show he put on.  We should give him the benefit of the doubt.  Knowing Filipinos, however, it is just a matter of time when the complaints start rolling in.

^already I'm hearing grumbles about his proposed liquor ban after midnight.

He also said something during the last debate (albeit not given attention by the media) about "burning dilapidated vehicles" to clear up the roads. I wonder if he will follow through with that.

I won't be surprised if it's the very same people who clamored for his brand of change. Miracle worker talaga ang hanap nila hindi pangulo.

I'm all for his current proposals. Implementation ang magiging problema as always - mga matitigas na ayaw sumunod vs. "mababait" na enforcer.

Still doesn't make sense.  If LP and the Administration went to all of the trouble to "shave" points off other candidates and put it in their bets, why not focus on Roxas?  Why is Leni supposedly reaping more benefits?

Mandaraya 1: Kelangan manalo ng mga kakampi natin sa LP!
Mandaraya 2: Siyempre, pero panalunin natin yung bise na wala naman masyadong kapangyarihan.  Yung Presidente bahala na siya! Ni huwag nating gawing malapit na laban!  Kelangan malayo yung agwat ni Digong ha!

If you're going to shave votes, why not shave big?  At the very least the questions about legitimacy will have been removed.

Sobrang kabobohan na iyan!

^ My dad used to work for Comelec before he retired. I asked him about LP and Du30, and his take on this is vote shaving already happened, but Du30's lead was just so big he still roflstomps Mar and Poe even after getting cheated. LP focused on Leni because Mar had no chance.

> kung nangyari kay erap, pwede naman ulitin kay duterts
Not gonna happen. Public sentiment is overwhelmingly in his favor. Ever speak to a cabbie, jeepney driver or any sort of laborer nowadays? Everyone is freakin stoked with how the elections turned out. Du30 is vox populi.

Assuming for a second that there were indeed points-shaving/dag-dag  bawas going on and favoring Roxas would be too obvious, why stop at Leni? Why not also trickle down to the LP senators? GMA did that during the "Hello Garci" affair. Besides, even though she is allied with the LP, I don't think its in her character to tolerate shenanigans. She is probably the only politician who actually believes in the party tenets (as opposed to others who only follow for as long as the party is in power and will jump ship the minute a new one is elected).
