New poll up
Commenting on the poll, I always thought that our presidential election cycle is too long. The world average is about 4.3 years. Most of the modern democratic countries in the EU and North America set their cycle at 4 years. Even Arab countries like Iran, Iraq, Turkey are at 4 years.
There's some advantage on a longer cycle, such as saving money for holding elections. But it also means that the elected administration is less accountable to the people -- The President of the Philippines, for example, don't ever have to worry about his or her re-election since the term is 6 years with no possibility of a consecutive term. Once he or she is elected, the President can do anything without having to worry about voter backlash.
I believe 4 years, with possibility of one consecutive term, is a better solution. If we get a bad administration, we can throw them out after 4 years. If we get a good one, we can re-elect them for a total of 8 years.
I believe in 5 years. One person could achieve only so much in just 4 years. 5 years is needed for this heavily damaged country to be fixed.
I believe in 3 years..A Double Edge sword
I thought RH bill was already implemented and I somehow do not trust Dueterte. I heard sources that he pays the NPA to stay out of Davao. But federalization seems to be a good idea, no more Manila Imperialism(maybe)
Though I'm fine with changing the number of term, I doubt that it will produce much change in the Philippines.
In a fully-fledged democracy however, shorter terms are more desirable as it gives less power to the ruler (given existing institutions are strong).
I think a balance is needed and let us change the term limits gradually, sudden changes always will give bad effects. 5 years, for example is a neat idea if we do not want 6 years and then after several years, change it to 4 years.
Our Pacman won! :D
