Villar says to push for completion of Metro Cebu expressway project
  MANILA, Philippines --- Former public works and highways secretary Mark A. Villar said Wednesday he would push for the continuation and completion of the Metro Cebu Expressway project, an arterial road that would serve as an alternative north-south backbone highway.

Marcos-Sara tandem eyes tapping Badjaos as sea patrollers
MANILA, Philippines --- The tandem of former senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. and Davao Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio is looking into using Badjaos as sea patrollers to protect the country's marine environment and prevent illegal fishing. The proposal, however, was met with sharp criticism from a militant fishermen's group. In a statement on Wednesday, the Marcos-Sara tandem said the skills of coastal tribes, which inhabits Tawi Tawi, Sulu, Basilan, and some coastal towns of Zamboanga City, could be helpful as force multipliers to the government's Bantay Dagat program. "Being expert fishermen, deep-sea divers, and navigators, Badjaos possess the skills to become effective...Keep on reading: Marcos-Sara tandem eyes tapping Badjaos as sea patrollers

Ferdinand Marcos’ elections: Not the same as the one his son is now taking part in
MANILA, Philippines---Ferdinand Marcos Jr.'s participation in democratic elections, as he is now doing, would have been unthinkable during the 21-year reign of his father, the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, for a simple reason---there was neither democracy nor democratic elections during the time.   Elections are said to be the single most effective tool for people to bring about change but during the Marcos dictatorship, this option ceased to exist.   In 1973, as the 1935 Constitution presented itself as the biggest obstacle to a third term that would violate the limit on a president's tenure, Marcos had already declared martial law and cancelled elections. ...Keep on reading: Ferdinand Marcos’ elections: Not the same as the one his son is now taking part in
