The 2016 election season has officially started, with the filing of certificates of candidacy of aspirants for 18,000 municipal, city, provincial, regional, and national positions.
This is a golden opportunity for netizens to remind ourselves of the issues we faced and got involved in since 2010 – some festering for an even longer time and many still a big pain. These concerns could be starting points for a Netizens’ Agenda, which in turn could be our common talking points with candidates and parties.
We fought, debated, stood up, filed petitions, attended hearings, argued before the Supreme Court, appeared before Congress, and marched for many of these issues. From online to offline, and vice versa.
#juanvote, our independent and social media-powered citizens’ coverage of the 2016 elections, would be interested in hearing from you. Hopefully, we would find a time and place to draft such a Netizens’ Agenda, with help from a crowd-sourced list and even from crowd-sourced drafting of the document.
The promotion of these issues and concerns could be one of the major contributions of #juanvote and collaborating communities in raising the level of discourse among candidates, and between voters and candidates.
