HOW TO VOTE FOR THE RIGHT CANDIDATE

By:  Atty. Ferdinand T. Rafanan

Regional Election Director, NCR

1.  Whom should you not vote?

a)      Do not vote for candidates who repair your roads, schools and bridges, or give money and free transportation, free food and drinks, free medicines, and other material things DURING THE CAMPAIGN PERIOD. These are crimes during the campaign period.

•         Good candidates and their campaigners should do these before the campaign period.

b)      Proudly tell in your conversations, speeches, writings, and posters that the following are not for sale: you, your parents, your brothers and sisters, your neighbors, your Barangay, your friends.

2. Who should give money, and free transportation, free food and drinks, free medicines and other material things DURING THE CAMPAIGN PERIOD?

•         Charitable people (other than candidates and their campaigners) and groups like the Red Cross, Rotary, Lions, Jaycees, etc. who are non-partisan or not identified with any candidate.

3. HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT CANDIDATE TO VOTE FOR?

a)      Know all the candidates

a)      Match their WILL, INTELLECT, SPIRIT, AND HEART with the functions of the office they aspire for

b)      Narrow down your choice through a process of elimination as follows:

W              I              S          H

CANDIDATE

WILL

= OBEY LAW

INTELLECT

= COMPETENCE

SPIRIT

=VISION

HEART

=CHARACTER

1 X / / /
2 / X / /
3 / / X /
4 / / / X
5 / / / /
6 / / / /
7 / / / /
8 / / / /
9 / / / /
10 X X X X
11 X X X X

DO NOT VOTE FOR CANDIDATES WITH X (FAILING) IN ANY CRITERIA. VOTE ONLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE CHECKS IN ALL CRITERIA. IF NONE PASS, VOTE NONE.  GOOD PEOPLE WILL SOON BECOME CANDIDATES WHEN THEY SEE THAT THERE ARE ENOUGH VOTERS WHO VOTE THIS WAY.  THAT WILL BE THE START OF THE END OF GRAFT AND CORRUPTION IN GOVERNMENT!

“A GOOD NAME IS MORE DESIRABLE THAN GREAT RICHES;  TO BE ESTEEMED IS BETTER THAN SILVER OR GOLD .”  ( PROV . 22:1, NIV)

“HONEST ELECTION BEGINS AT THE HEART!” (FTR)
