- I am not an activist,
- I am not planning to run for any government position today and definitely not in the future, never in my entire existence here on earth,
- I don't have grudges with the government officials,
I am just a concern citizen and since we have freedom of expression let me say my point of view and if you have time please share yours as well.
Yesterday, the "Freedom of Information" (FOI) bill was scheduled to be ratified by the House of Representatives during the last day of session of the 14th Congress. But it was killing instead of ratification due to lack of quorum. 135 lawmakers were needed to have a quorum but only 128 showed in the session hall. Isn't that awesome? Hey, where were the rest of the lawmakers? But well of course, we know that they cannot transact any business without the proper quorum, so what should we do? Aren't you suppose to represent us, but where were you? argggggggggggg...........
To tell you the truth, I feel betrayed. Yeah, that's right! This is a 12-year-old bill people and this will give us, the citizens the right to have access to all important documents and will give transparency to all government transactions. Besides, what they're spending is our money, the taxes we're contributing every month from our salary. I wouldn't react like this if there were no public scandals and issues about government projects, then afterwards it's a tug of war between who's to blame and who's right and wrong.
