ON THE ADMIN CLAIM THAT PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW THE RULE OF LAW  

 

While we do not subscribe to extra constitutional means to effect political change, more and more, this government has shown its propensity to disregard the rule of law in its efforts to survive crisis after crisis brought about by its own questionable acts. The question therefore is this: Why should people stay committed to upholding the rule of law when to their minds the highest officials of the land, those who swore to uphold the rule of law, have in broad daylight disregarded the same? We do not adhere to extra constitutional means to effect change yet we understand why there is a growing desperation amongst our people for genuine change regardless. Sa dami ng iskandalo na kinasasangkutan ng gobyerno, sila mismo ang numero unong nagpapakita ng kanilang kawalan ng respeto sa mga batas. Kung sumunod ang mamamayan sa masamang halimbawa ng gobyerno, gobyerno rin ang dapat sisihin.
