    • Before we decide who will be the next president, let’s compare the accomplishments and performance of bbm & leni (google – Leni Robredo Biography, Latest Update, Laws, Achievements, Net Worth). Check the number of bills passed (not filed) with them as principal authors. Salamat po.

    • Yes, bbm has some achievements, but why was’nt he able to file his income tax return for four consecutive years? That’s a very basic responsibility of a good citizen. Moreso, for government official – that should be a primary responsibility.

      Also OK na sana sya. Kaya lang, I still want to know why he got a Special Diploma in Social Studies, when – as per record from Oxford, he enrolled in AB in Political Science, Philosophy and Economics? Being familiar with the British System, I know that the most important exam there is the final exam. If you pass the finals, you pass the course and you graduate. All final exam questions are published in Library every year, so one would get the idea of the questions that will be given every year. Almost the same – but with some twist. So, if the student is diligent, serious to graduate, and disciplined he will graduate. But if one is lazy – mahirapan sya… Salamat po

  1. I am just curious since there are too many people to vote. Does he not have achievements as a senator (bills passed etc)

    • sir i suggest you do your own research. as far as i can tell this site is also bias they didn’t even put the achievements of BBM during his congress and senate
