The Uninformed Filipino Electorate

An Uninformed Electorate:

Apart from harassment, vote-buying and patronage politics, we are saddled with a poorly informed electorate that picks candidates because they look good or can sing, dance and speak well in the movies or on television.

Yeah, that about sums it up. And as an Issues PEXer opined last week, it’s actually advantageous to the average Filipino politician to keep the voters uneducated. :(
