Pres. Gloria Arroyo as Congresswoman?

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is definite to run for re-election as Congresswoman in the second district of Pampanga. PGMA told Radyo ng Bayan Palace reporter Mari Peña Ruiz today (Monday) about her filing of Certificate of Candidacy (COC) tomorrow December 1.
Will that be legal? Are Kabalens really sought PGMA to run as Congresswoman? Or it will be part of the plan to pursue a parliamentary form of government where PGMA can serve as a Prime Minister?

Whatever PGMA motives are and her allies, as well as other politicians who will run on 2010 Elections, it is very important for all the voters to cast their votes wisely. Let us stop these politicians from using us and always leaving us with broken promises. From the smallest islands to the biggest ones, let us all be united in choosing the next batch of leaders of our country who really have the heart and clear conscience to lead us. Let us not focus ourselves on the barangay or district we are part of but think of ourselves as a part of this country that is submerged into so much corruptions, poverty and jobless people.

Let us all ask God’s guidance as we come to our precinct and vote. May God’s power and love flows on our hearts and minds so we can choose the rightful one.

Partial transcript and video of President Arroyo's announcement on Radyo ng Bayan

Mga kababayan, lubos na karangalan at pribilehiyo para sa akin ang maglingkod sa sa taumbayang Pilipino bilang pangulo. Gumawa ako ng malalaking pagtulong... sa ekonomiya, edukasyon, ugnayang pandaigdigan, at paglikha ng trabaho.

While I am very much looking forward to stepping down as president at the end of my term, I am mulling different ways to stay involved. Tiningnan ko ang pagbalik sa pagturo; I also studied working with nonprofit organizations on issues ranging from the environment to women's issues. After much contemplation I realized I am not ready to step down completely from public service.

Gaya ng alam nyo, hiniling din ako ng mga mamamayan sa aking tahanang distrito sa Pampanga na manatili sa buhay publiko. So after much soul-searching I have decided to respond affirmatively to their call. To that end, I will file my candidacy for Congress in order to serve the hardworking people of my home province.

Giving up political ambition for the sake of peace and order should be considered not only by Mrs. Arroyo but also by Mr. Estrada. I have an appeal for them here said...

@ Marvin:

Thanks for dropping by. With the kind of politicians we have right now the only left to us Filipinos is to stand as one and not divided, to fight and make change for our country.
