politics in Samar’s first district
By ROMMEL L. RUTOR
CATBALOGAN, Samar –
Observing from the recent “alleged” dirty political occurrences hounding the
province’ first district, the Partidong Demokratikong Sosyalista nga Pilipinas (PDSP)
vowed that it will put an end to dirty politics that accordingly preempts the
people from choosing leaders that could help them alleviate their depressing
PDSP Regional Chair Charlie
Avila the other week told media that they are strengthening their ground in the
first district and disclosed that about 80 percent of all the available
positions that will be vied upon this coming May 14, 2007 elections in Samar’s
first district is already occupied.
“In fact our strength is
steadily growing, and we are confident that we will be able to fill-in all
positions before the deadline of the filing of candidacy, we have to do this,
because we could no longer just sit and watch the people in the first district
being hindered by a dictatorial type of governance”, Avila stressed.
He said that it is supposed to
be the people who should influence the government, thru their leaders, to
realize what is good for their life, “and not the politicians, as a matter of
fact your politics here is the worst I’ve ever seen”, he told.
The PDSP on March 3 finished
its second batch of political orientation to all local officials and other May
2007 election “wannabes” here, which was facilitated by San Jorge Mayor Joseph
“We have to do this, we cannot
just take in people who don’t understand the real meaning politics, politicians
are servants of the people, but what is happening here is the other way around,
which is why we are promising the Samareños that we will be giving them leaders
who can deliver them from the bondage of tyrannical politics”, Avila said.
Avila cited the alleged
political maneuvering being perpetrated by the political foes of Mayor Grey, who
is the congressional bet of the PDSP party in Samar’s first district against
incumbent Congressman Reynaldo Uy.
He revealed that the case
being faced by Mayor Grey is purely a form of harassment to prevent him from
pushing his bid in the congressional race, and further assured the public that
the PDSP party will strongly stand behind all their candidates, “if that is the
only way we can assure the Samareños of pro-people leaders”, he concluded.
The PDSP is part of the
administration’s Team Unity coalition, and was co-founded by now National
Security Adviser Sec. Norberto Gonzales.
