The Filipinos 4 Poe (F4P), a newly formed political action movement for Senator Grace Poe is extremely elated over the rencent result of the SWS Survey in the Philippines.

Esguerra, also a FACLA Director also said, “Poe ‘s ranked second in the SWS survey conducted from March 20 to 23 this year with 31 percent, which was a five-percentage point away from Binay’s 36 percent rating. “

Again, Esguerra pointed out, “Poe’s March rating was a big increase from the previous 21 percent she received in December last year, proved that she is a candidate to watch.

This time, the SWS validated these results is not just a fluke but a naked truth that she is the candidate to beat comes 2016.”

Poe Still Humble

FILAM COMMUNITY LEADERS SUPPORTS OMBUDSMAN AGAINST “DOCTRINE OF CONDONATION OR “AGUINALDO DOCTRINE”

Los Angeles – Filam Community leaders were united in their stand last TALAKAYAN Sa FACLA, Thursday, April 16 on their support for the Ombudsman against the “Doctrine of Condonation” or “Aguinaldo Doctrine.

Ombudsman Chief Conchita Morales-Carpio brought this up as the lawyers of Mayor jojo Binay used this doctrine as an argument against is suspension before the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno questions this doctrine because “it is being used to abuse power and foster graft and corruption”.

She added,” there are 35,000 elected local officials and if everyone uses this doctrine, its an excuse for the abuse of power.”

“Aguinaldo Doctrine” breeds graft and corruption.

Alliance leader Arturo P. Garcia said, “ we support the Ombudsman because it will be a handicap against the government’s campaign against graft and corruption if the accused officials use this law in their favor.”

RVNC leader Dr, Orlando Cagampan brought out the fact that “Senator Grace Poe is a little less than 5 points away from the survey leader Vice President Jejomar Binay.” That brought discussion of the TALAKAYAN into the 2016 presidential elections.

On the other hand FACLA Directors Susan Oca and Linda Nery, guests of TALAKAYAN Sa FACLA gave an update on the FACLA 7oth Anniversary an invited the community leaders to the 2-day celebrations of FACLA on April25 and 26, 2015.
