President Benigno “Noynoy”Aquino III, was elected as the 15th President of the Philippines in May this year, in the midst of the people’s disgust with Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s rule characterized by fraud, corruption scandals, abuse of power and bloody human rights record. Noynoy, heir to Cory and Ninoy Aquino who are both publicly admired as icons of democracy, gave a most welcome promise of pagbabago (change) and daang matuwid (a straight path).
But data and statistics mirroring the human rights situation under Noynoy’s presidency in the first quarter (July to September 2010) of his stint in Malacanang do not augur well for the people.
... So where is the promised change?
