Unique Campaigns at Barangay Elections 2010


Most of the candidates will have to be resourceful these days in order to outdo opponents. Starting from the campaign materials, music and jingles up to the highly-contested miting de avance, a barangay election candidate must have a concrete goal in order to draw voters, old and new registrants.

That's how I observe the forthcoming BARANGAY ELECTIONS 2010 here n the Philippines come October 25th.

I've seen many antics and strategies that candidates are showing when the campaign period started yesterday. There are colorful parades, shower of candies and all.

One barangay can have two or three barangay captain candidates. There are even independent candidates who believe that they have the capacity to serve the people in their vicinity.

I'm sure, VOTE-BUYING will be rampant before and on the election day. I know how a Filipino family is closely-knit with each other. The father or mother of a certain family or clan will surely influence  their siblings or children.

Coinciding the local elections is the SK (Sangguniang Kabataan) elections. Young as they are, they also believe that they can handle the pressure in handling key positions at the local electorate or the youth seat at the barangay council.

Okay, let's wait and see who wins and who will be defeated. Good luck to all! Just avoid being violent (as early news revealed). Win or loose, it is just another competition that should be respected by everyone, the voters and the candidates.
