Questions A 90’s Baby Would Ask

In this blog post, I decided to ask people of my generation a simple question, “If you were given the chance to ask the presidential candidates a question, what would it be and why?”, and I figured to list some of them down. Hopefully, they get to be addressed during one of the candidates’ forums.

  1. “What is really the purpose of the multi-party sytem in the country? Does it do anything significant to aid the problems faced by the country?” – Mary Khristine P. Juan , DLSU
  2. “If you were not elected as president, how would you plan to help the Philippines?”– Allen Joshua F. Olaño , DLSU

  5. “Given the several issues and problems that are brought upon by the system of governance, and the disputes against other sectors, do you think that amending the 1987 Constitution can solve some of these issues, especially concerning ideas that have evolved through time? If yes, then which articles and why?” – Maria Patricia G. Ramos , ADMU
  6. “According to the World Economic Forum, the Philippines’ economic rank has been improving; with this in mind however, as the economy grows the gap between the rich and the poor increase as well. Since poverty is one of the main problems in the country, how would you plan to address this problem but also continue to develop the country’s economy to ensure global competitiveness? Please cite concrete examples.” – Denise San Jose , ADMU

How are you going to address corruption on a large scale, like the embezzlement of funds originally meant for project, and on a relatively smaller scale, like those who offer a much shorter way to get access to basic necessities like forms in the DFA or one’s plastic driver’s license card. How can you ensure that your proposed measures will be implemented and enforced properly?” – Emmanuel Del Rosario , ADMU
