Most corrupt? Here’s proof from the government itself.

April 17, 2007

Last week’s news featured a story about a Government Office (we can’t say who, they are all denying it) purchasing five hundred computers at a cost of Philippine Peso 250,000.00/unit. Computer stores we called offer fully modified (modem, DVD-capable, etc.) for costs ranging from PhP30-45, 000.00. Obviously, pricing things at almost ten times their actual cost is now the government standard. So much for transparency. In case the reader is curious, the Currency Exchange rate as of today, April 17, 2007, is USD1-PhP48.
Go figure. This story about a week after the Philippines was named as the most corrupt country in the world under President(?) Gloria M. Arroyo. Maybe the government was in a hurry to prove the report about the Philippines being the 1st in corruption world-wide.

  1. I would vote for all the senatorial and congressional candidates that belong to the GENUINE OPPOSITION. That is the only way to express a “protest vote” in the coming election. An expression of protest vote is necessary to provoke a peaceful and lawful change in national governance. The Arroyo administration has been rocked by human rights’ abuses, scandals, and cheating allegations during the 2004 national election. And the Filipino people must lawfully express their discontent with such a regime by whole-heartedly voting for all the senatorial and congressional candidates of the GENUINE OPPOSITION.
