It's Aquino - the second time around..

Another Aquino made history. After the successful first automated elections in the history of the Philippines (but later on lead to the manual canvassing of votes in the Congress) and a total of 14 Million votes last May 10, 2010, Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III is proclaimed the 15th President of the Republic of the Philippines.

I am not one of the 14 million Filipinos who supported Noynoy's campaign during the elections. I am for Gibo Teodoro and will still hope to have him as the next President after Noynoy, if ever he runs again. I always see Noynoy's "running" for the presidency as an good opportunity for him because it was during the the time that her mom died when he decided to also run for the position. Plus the fact that his close media (of course with the help of his sister Kris Aquino) would definitely amuse the public and get their votes. Anyways, he has always been my next option after Gibo so I would settle for his leadership.

Noynoy may not be the best senator during his time, but his presence was believed by the Filipinos. He is always the target of controversies especially those related to his mental condition, his vices especially smoking and of course, being tangled to Kris's showbiz and personal life issues. How much more will it take now that he is the country's most powerful individual? The Filipino people will have all eyes on him, on how he would uplift the country's status after nine years under President Arroyo's regime.

I wish President Noynoy the best of luck for his journey. I hope all his dreams of putting an end to poverty, corruption and injustice in this country will be a reality. It may not be instant but it is not impossible.
