  1. Buying and selling of votes are rampant. Just by this is enough to say that Comelec is a useless entity. There is no freedom where suffrage is trampled.

  3. we need a barangay leader whose name is not tainted with corruption and whose concern for the community is not questionable. We don't deserve a leader whose purpose is for selfish end.
