Table Talk

1-Pacman party list will revive the late former President Diosdado Macapagal’s successful program during his term of the Emergency Employment Authority (EEA), wherein the jobless during Macapagal’s time were given jobs to solve the growing unemployment rate during those times. The EEA was so successful that 1-Pacman party list wants to revive the program as part of its advocacy of job generation.

The ongoing talks that some partylists are to be disqualified if they are  found to be supported by politicians,  will not affect 1-Pacman partylist because it is connected with political candidates. 1-Pacman partylist has always shown itself to be independent from politicians from the very beginning. The name Pacman although synonymous with the monicker of boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, but the champion is only a supporter of 1-Pacman partylist because he believes in the advocacy of 1-Pacman in the field of sports. That is the only connection of the boxing champion to 1-Pacman partylist.

Dr. Mikee Romero, the nominee of 1-Pacman, has always maintained the independence of the party list 1-Pacman. Dr. Mikee Romero, being a first timer in politics wanted always to concentrate in the advocacy of 1-Pacman rather than indulge in partisan politics which will destroy the objectives of 1-Pacman partylist, which it has nurtured from the very beginning. Being a businessman and successful he feels that independence of a partylist group is one sure way to achieve its objectives.

Also as a former professor in economcs at the prestigious Ateneo de Manila University and La Salle university, Dr. Mikee Romero also believes in the doctrine that success and development can only happen if the people are happy and contented. This is one reason that 1-Pacman added Education and Job Generation in 1-Pacman advocacy aside from Sports.

Although 1-Pacman is not connected with any politicians but many are supporting it because of its advocacy that is for the whole and not only for a certain segment of the Philippines society. 1-Pacman leadership promised to reveal in due time those who are supporting them.

Scoop: 1-Pacman partylist still continue to push through with its objectives and advocacy and it will continue to do so to prove wrong its detractors. Dr. Mikee Romero always believes that 1-Pacman advocacy is one sure way to help the less fortunate Filipinos. Agree or disagree.
