Puno as Philippine President in 2010

Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato Puno who is facing a politically motivated ouster move found many Boholanos his instant fans and supporters.

This surfaced during a random phone/text survey conducted yesterday by the top-rated weekly program "Radyo Merkado"  (7:45-10am, Saturday)  over dyRD. 

A remarkable 79.2% of the respondents even ventured to say that Puno is a "good material for the presidency."
Of those who tossed him as a presidential timber, 85% explained their opinion that "it is because the nation needs a credible, honest person to lead this nation by 2010.

"We are tired of traditional politicians whose records would indicate having been linked in one way or the other to graft and corruption," the respondents repeatedly said over the airlanes.

However, 19% of the respondents commented to say that "no matter how credible Puno is, he will be tainted with a political color once he joined the elections next year."

In fact the respondents cited that it was not a "good start" that the chief justice was endorsed to the presidency by Sen. Panfilo Lacson.

"Puno should get the endorsements from various religious and private groups because of his integerity,"  a respondent stressed.
The Integrated Bar of the Phils. (IBP-Bohol chapter) is formalizing a resolution expressing their  support for the retention of Puno as chief executive, according to lawyer Isabelo Sales, Jr., IBP-Bohol president. - source: The Bohol Chronicle

Panglao Bohol International Airport Update

The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has endorsed Gov. Erico Aumentado's request to frontload the 2010 budget for the Panglao Bohol International Airport to 2009.
  In a letter to Budget and Management Secretary Rolando Andaya, DOTC Secretary Leandro Mendoza favorably endorsed Aumentado's request seeking the frontloading, citing among other reasons, that 2010 is an election year.
  As such, Aumentado had explained, Congress might not be able to approve on time the calendar year 2010 General Appropriations Act (GAA), giving the country no other choice but to operate on a reenacted budget.
  A reenacted budget would jeopardize the airport project, the governor pointed out, because the 2009 budget carries only P307.5 million for the airport. The balance of the amount that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo earlier approved for DOTC to come up with stands at P690,971,398 for a total allocation needed of P998,471,398.
