A respected and successful businessman is known from his Word of Honour (Palabra de Honor), quality and timely deliveries and has a good management skills. As a manager, one has a good motivational skill, leader and must implement what is due for the organization expectation. Businessman or manager, they are both leaders, same as the president of the philippines. The newly elected President, Pnoy as he would like the people to call him must show leadership and word of honor when he said that he supported then the Reproductive Health Bill and told to the press that the principles are not mandatory that is why there are choices and options.
They said "Kung anong nakikita ng bata na ginagawa ng matanda. sa mata ng bata ay tama." In politics the emplementation must come first from the upper level of management which have the executive power down to the barangay level in order for everyone to follow, well from what they say, "follow the leader".
From different views of women who got offended by the turnaround decision of Pnoy from supporting to not priority, the question lies on what really trigger, convince and to final decision to drop the Reproductive Health Bill as one of his priority after a few days where the six house bills related to RH has been approved to be consolidated and now renamed it to Responsible Parenthood. the sudden surprised from all the RH advocates including Reproductive Health Advocares Network(RHAN), Democratic Socialist Women of the Philippines(DSWP), Pinagsamang Lakas ng Kababaihan at Kabataan (PILAKK), Philippine Legislators Committee on Population and Development Foundation, Inc. (PLCPD), Reproductive Health I Support Group (RHISG) and all people who voted for him because one of his platforms is Responsible Parenthood.
Where is the word of honour? On different networking sites such as Facebook, Tweeter and Blogspot, almost all topics are all about the quick changes in decision of Pnoy. The President has dropped the RH bill from the list of priority bills he would submit to Congress leaders during the Legislative-Executive Development Advisory Council (LEDAC) meeting on Feb. 28. Word of honour or "palabra de honor" as some filipinos calling it is a very important characteristic of a person specially with individuals who leads a lot of people like a manager or businessman, what more if someone is the President of the Philippines. Palabra de Honor can better explained as "marunong tumupad ang isang tao sa kanyang binitiwang salita". So does Pnoy have the Palabra de Honor? another point to consider of Pnoy is this about Palabra de Honor, "Dapat maingat ang isang tao sa pagbitaw ng pangako dahil aasahan ito ng kanyang kausap. Kapag ang pangako ay laging napapako o di natutupad wala ng sinuman maniniwala pa sa bibitawang salita ng nangako."
Filipinos who voted for Pnoy are happy when he won, less corrupt, usually thats what they say. Somebody with honorable parents, with good political background, rich, son of a hero, son of a religious and called the mother of democracy, son of the former president and most of all the one who is not greedy of power that needed to go to a retreat to make a choice, to run in the 2010 Presidential race. Carlos Celdran, an RH advocate who is now facing a trial this comng March 10, 2011 for "offending religious feelings", who didnt vote for Pnoy and publicly supported Pnoys cousin Gibo Theodoro was furious and called the president P-boy instead of Pnoy from his facebook status and in which P from him doesnt mean President.
The author voted for Pnoy for a change. everyone are smart, educated and has all the will to fight with their platforms. But for nine months now, with increasing price of petroleum, SLEX toll fee which if one will exit in alabang from calamba goes up from twenty one pesos to seventy three pesos, a shocking reality for everyone on the driver seat. With carnapping, bombs and higher prices of basic necessities, so far, a lot of filipinos are disappointed. Though people in this country with the majority of the population who are poor, from the last survey from Pulse Asia, 69 percent supports the RH bill. Population is more or less 93 million in 2010, this is the time to show off. To show off the power, change and political will reform. To our everdearest Pnoy, our President, Filipinos are believers, Patient and still looks up for this new administration. Show that you have the best characteristic of a leader aside from being not corrupt, show that you have a Palabra de Honor.
