WHY NOT BLAME THE VOTERS?

POSTED IN OPINION,PILIPINAS

I find it strange that some people would absolve voters of responsibility in the kind of people that are elected to public office – good or bad.
The fact is simply this: people don’t get into elected positions unless they are voted for. That being the case, who else are you going to blame (or, to be fair, applaud) for how the elected official turns out?

All of those registered voters on record without biometric data shall be required to undergo biometrics data capture, i.e., a digital photograph is taken of the registrant, his fingerprints are digitally taken, and his signature is electronically recorded.

VOTERS' PLEDGE

I am a Responsible and Principled Citizen.

I will educate myself and others about the issues at hand so that my vote is a meaningful and relevant exercise of my right of suffrage.

I pledge to vote for candidates who will abide by the duly constituted rules on campaigning because I understand that those who refuse to obey the law in the little things are not likely to obey the law in the more important things;

I pledge to vote for candidates who, by word and action, renounce violence, coercion, vote-buying, and corruption as means for getting elected;

I pledge to vote for the candidates who listen to their constituents and are responsive to the needs and aspirations of those they seek to represent;

I pledge to vote as my conscience dictates in all elections.

I make these promises freely and upon my honor.

(This Voter Pledge was read at the Unity Walk of 13 January 2013, by COMELEC Commissioner Elias R. Yusoph)
