Power capacity shortfall, too much corruption and fake land titles were among the issues tackled at the Balitaan sa Hotel Rembrandt recently.
Businessman Manny SD Lopez of ePirma summarized the new normal as too much corruption that should be eradicated through the people’s initiative.
Deo Reloj Jr. the chief Technology Officer of BioSyn Resources Inc., debunked the request for an emergency power for the President, adding that the Department of Energy should stop the myth of power capacity shortfall and be truthful to the people.
Activist Daniel Frianeza said the government should be wary with the proliferation of fake land titles. The torrens system was utililized as a useful means for the issuance of land titles without probative origin. Those fake titles become the effective strategy in land grabbing.
Department of National Defense Director Popong Andolong stressed that the government’s no-ransom policy will never change and the claim of the Abu Sayyaf that they were paid a huge amount could be an equivalent to what observers have been saying that the group has metamorphosed into a new version of “Budol-budol” gang.
