Civil Society for Constitutional Reforms (Part 1)
Reforming Philippine society to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth is painstakingly slow that some times one is tempted to give up. Even President Duterte realizes how difficult it is to promote good governance and fight corruption. In a less than a year of his Administration, he has sacked a good number of officials he appointed himself and whom he trusted as good and loyal friends because they were not beyond reproach. No society can progress very much without a clean and efficient State. When can we reach that desirable goal? Probably not in my lifetime, considering how other countries very much ahead of us in economic development like South Korea and Malaysia still have their shares of corruption scandals.
