As I listened and observed the goings-on in Metro-Manila and the provinces -- I sense a disturbing trend among the Filipino electorate that there seems to be a burgeoning nationwide feeling that the May 10, 2010 Elections may not push through -- due to recent circumstances lurking in the psyche of Filipino voters -- and that may yet result in that dreaded "failure in election" on a national scale. The actions recently taken by the Comelec in overturning the victories of Bulacan Governor Mendoza and Isabela Governor Grace Padaca -- exacerbated by Pampanga Governor "Among Ed" Panlilio's win being turned over too in the coming days in favor of Pampanga Jueteng queen Lillian Pineda -- evokes the ghost of another "Hello Garci" episode. BTW -- our DPP leadership and I visited Among Ed only last December 8 -- Feastday of the Immaculate Conception -- during a medical mission he pulled together in his former parish of Bettis, Pampanga. He intimated to us that such a turn-over is forthcoming -- unless he can come up with millions of pesos to contest such an expensive vote-recount. Additionally, the recent Maguindanao massacre and the unearthing of countless voters' registration cards within the compounds of the Ampatuan's vast mansions and enormous properties -- along with the "presumed" displacement of millions of new voters in their respective precincts -- especially among the first-time Youth voters -- could well evoke such an election debacle. That GMA would win Pampanga's 2nd Congressional District is a "done deal." But whether or not she's going to take over the post of House Speaker -- and then on to becoming Prime Minister in a unicameral Philippine Congress -- with the Philippine Senate being obliterated and considered irrelevant - is being highly speculated by political pundits. Be that as it may -- let's hope and pray it doesn't happen --- and that we would have truly a genuine, peaceful and orderly elections nationwide -- come May 10, 2010 Elections -- so that Democracy may yet live again in our land. Ernie G. Ramos Chairman, Democratic Party of the Philippines
