Philippines
November 10, 2009 6:39pm CST
Last Sunday, Ebdane officially announced that he will run for president in 2010 election. In case you don't know him, he is the former PNP chief and DPWH secretary. Now, he is also hoping to get endorsement from FVR. Do you think he will win and can he be a good president? No hurting words, please. Here is the link to the full story - http://angelcuala.blogspot.com/2009/11/ebdane-for-president-hopes-endorsement.html

read about ebdane's decision to run for president the other day. he is getting the endorsement from the party 'lapiang manggagawa'. not so sure about the capacity of ebdane and of his political party to go on a full-scale election campaign around the country but ebdane did say that for every peso that other candidates will spend, he will spend only ten to twenty five cents since there are really three political parties/organization behind him that are ready to support him from the local to the national secretary. ebdane is also banking on the support that he will get from former president fidel ramos as well as from the pnp and military to take him all the way to malacanan in 2010. big words coming from the former dpwh secretary. personally, i don't see ebdane posing a serious threat to the established presidential candidates. i have yet to hear or read about his platform and programs in government should he be elected but something is just not right with his filing for candidacy. it seems that ebdane is just a puppet and someone who truly yields all the power over all these groups that are supporting ebdane is really the one calling the shots from behidn the scene. call me paranoid but then again we have seen this scenario a lot of times already. just my thoughts. cheers!!!

Ebdane for the Presidency? I am not satisfied with the services of DPWH. Even if Former President Fidel V. Ramos endorses him, I will not vote for him.

I would still go for Noynoy Aquino for president this upcoming national election. I think, its in the blood of Noynoy to be a public servant and the legacy to serve the public runs in his family. From the former late Senator Ninoy Aquino to the former late President Corazon Aquino, I still believe in the capacity of Noynoy to be a good and responsible servant for his fellowmen. I also believe that he will not destroy the good image that his parents had leaved in the country. Considered both as icon of democracy, Noynoy will leave a legacy of his own for the benefits of the Filipino people. Let us support Noynoy Aquino this upcoming presidential election. Let him serve the country and prove each one of us what he can do to change the status of our country especially in terms of economics and the corruption among public servants. I also advice those voters to vote wisely. Know the capacities of each candidates before writing their name in the ballot.

Ebdane for President? I don't think so! Yes, he's a true leader. Yes, he's a hard working. Maybe, he is not corrupt. Maybe, he knows how to be President. Maybe, he can be trusted. Maybe, he's wise and intelligent. For now, here in the Philippines, it doesn't matter how good or trustworthy you are. It's your "machinery" that'll help you get to that position. I'm for Noynoy and Mar!

That was a surprised note to me back when I first heard of the news. I am thinking that if he is indeed wanting for a elected political position he should first seek for a lower position like senator, congressman, or even a mayor first before seeking the highest position in the land. Or is it because there is an ongoing investigation that went out about his dealings about the road user's tax scam that involves him and some cohorts of his. This allegations that tend to put him on bad light and his seeking for the highest position in the land might just cover his skin from immunity from being sued upon. With the alleged billions of money that he allegedly got from various dealings I think he could very well afford to run on his own funding.

The DPWH man, one of the most corrupt branch of government. What did they do in their time as DPWH incharge? I went home in my province, the road where good before but the last time I saw the place, the road going there is hard to pass thru. I saw a lone worker cementing a strech of a pavement which is appalling to see. Now I heard of the road users tax by sen santiago to realized that we have allocated budget for road repair. What have they done. Maybe he is just a boss doing nothing. I wonder where he gets his budget to run. If he becomes a president maybe corruption will be more rampant, most generals you can never trust.

He's very much welcome to join the circus since he is very much qualified. I just don't think he is that popular to win. Personally I don't know much about him, maybe he is those low key type of person but i will try to take a look at his background using wiki and see if I find something notable about him. Is there a website aside aside from wiki that you can see all the candidates profile? if no then i hope someone will initiate in coming up with one since this would be a good way for all voters to research on the candidate as far as qualifications are concerned and not just based their votes on what they hear on the news although I'm sure this would not be an easy task as there are possible biases involved.
