Disunity and Paucity
The opposition and
administration camps are now frantically preparing for the May 2007
national and local elections. The Lakas-NUCD-led administration coalition
party has been downplaying the opposition’s chances of winning, harping on
the alleged disunity among them. Indeed, some opposition personalities
have expressed their intention to run for the Senate with or without the
endorsement of former President Estrada and the United Opposition. Be that
as it may, the upcoming elections are worth watching as the administration
is obviously bent on getting the majority in Congress to avoid any attempt
to impeach President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Vigilance is therefore the
key for concerned groups and individuals to ensure that elections, for a
change, will be honest and orderly.
Salungguhit literally means to
underline; figuratively, to
underscore or highlight.
