WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING A LEADER?
The next President must be mentally strong and stable, have a good grasp of the situation, and be capable of understanding the problems that beset the Philippines so that he can consider the action options and choose the right solutions that will best serve the interest of the Nation.
The next President must be sensitive to the harsh realities that many Filipinos find themselves in. Empathy is necessary because a President that is numb to the sufferings of his countrymen cannot govern effectively and responsively.
The next President must have courage and strength of will to face the difficult problems of the country and to institute necessary reforms that will redound to the benefit of the Nation regardless of the inconvenience and discomfort that will be felt by deeply entrenched vested interests.
The next President must remember that he was elected to serve the People. His words and policy consistency matter. Given the urgency of now, he cannot dilly-dally, hesitate midway, and – after moving forward – suddenly retract, retreat, and drastically reverse course to the detriment of the Nation’s interests.
We must choose well who shall lead our Nation, as President. The 2022 elections is just on the horizon. Let us consider our options and use our current state, as our country’s weighing scale for choosing the next leadership.
WE NEED A LEADER, a real leader, and NOT A PRETENDER
