Acceptance matters

I can't believe that some of my countrymen cannot accept our newly elected President Marcos when the numbers of the one they have supported is miles away. Some even insinuate that there's a broad electoral fraud. I just hope they will accept the outcome of the election and support our new leader for the good of the country...

He's a controversial character, it's reasonable to have doubts, but time will tell us more.

It can be difficult for some people. We went through the same thing when Biden won the presidency. Some people still refuse to accept it and think the election was stolen. Or some kind of fraud was done.

Biden is not the son of a dictator though.

For the time being, I will not contest the results because I am aware that my candidate did not even attempt to raise any objections to the election results. My favored candidate is now prepared to become a private citizen and serve her country in that capacity. For the time being, I shall act as an observer to see if he can deliver on his promises to the people. He faces a monumental task in reconciling this deeply divided country, and we'll see if he succeeds, as I believe the current administration has failed to unite the country rather than further divide it.

There will always be opposition but hopefully the opposition will support the good deeds that the president will tender. The ball that the president will carry is quite heavy. Hopefully, we will lend our hand also to lessen the weight that he will be carrying instead of whipping him while trying his best...

@simplfred For the time being, I'll just sit back and watch what happens in the next days. We'll see whether any decisions are made that bring our country closer together again, as they promised. If I believe he is sincere in keeping his promise to us, I will support  him. But, for the time being, I continue to have my reservations, which is why I am skeptical of what they have planned for the country.

In my opinion, we should unite and support the new leaders for the betterment of our country. Pray for them to make good and intelligent decisions is what I think we shoudl be doing as well.

Yeah, and also will start with the acceptance of defeat by the other candidates.. Tell her/his to unite with the winners, to give him chance to prove his worth...

You didn't vote for a dilators's son, a thief, and a liar with no clean track record. And you didn't witness rampant vote buying, as well as apparent cheating. It's all over the International news. The international community is even disappointed with our election. Huge companies have withdrawn their investment and foreign investors have us on the bottom list now when they saw the result of the election.

@toniganzon When we say liar, aren't we all? A thief? What he has stolen? Vote buying he doesn't need that... But it's all over now. What we need is healing... Give Marcos a chance to prove himself... This is about the future of our country...

Yeah... Vote buying is rampant here especially local leaders like Governor and Mayor... And that's really the main problem even if the candidate is good but he won't use money he will not win...
