And finally, we already have a new President. By noon of June 30, President-elect Noynoy Aquino will assume office in the Palace along with his new (while some are recycled) set of Cabinet members. So what should we expect from him?
After his proclamation yesterday, he immediately called a press conference. Many asked him if what would be his priorities; many also asked what he would do on AFP Chief of Staff Gen Bangit who was bypassed by the Commission on Appointments?
He did not give specific answer to some of the questions, he just said that he will have to review all the issues or problems that the country is facing. It is really understood that he really has to pick which should come first in the list. While on Bangit’s issue, he said that all the AFP officers who were bypassed by the CA will be reviewed except for Bangit. He did not elaborate. However Aquino said that he will extend PNP Chief Jesus Versoza. Why? ANC’s Glenda Gloria has some thoughts to ponder here.
Let’s wait and see what Aquino can do. Let’s give him a chance.

Unlike in the past, you would only find “ukay-ukay” shirts and pants. But these days, everything is almost there in “ukay-ukay” stalls.

As expected by most of Davaoeños, the younger current vice mayor Inday Sara Duterte defeated the country’s fourth powerful person — House Speaker Boy Nograles — in the mayoralty race of Davao City. Nograles campaigned hard to live with his dream of becoming a mayor of Davao City. But on May 10, more than 380,000 people of Davao City frustrated the House Speaker, who only earned about 160,000 votes from all three districts here. Continue reading here.
