The election day in the Philippines for national and local candidates falls today. This is the day to put into writing the decision of every individual on whom to install as leaders of the Philippines, at the national and at the local levels. The political surveys have shown the voice of the people, chosen at random, revealing majority percentage of votes to a trash-talking presidentiable. If the elections were based on this political survey, then this trash-talking presidentiable would have been declared the winner as majority percentage of votes are in his favor. But, then the individual electorates actually casting their votes will be the final judge. For whatever the results maybe, in the end, the people shall have to respect it. The losing candidates shall have to concede.

I am happy to hear about the success of other people. I have friends who have passed the 2015 Bar Licensure Examinations. This examination is one of the prestigious professional licensure exam to students who graduate in the Bachelor of Laws in the Philippines. I know three people as of now who passed: two are my officemates and one is a friend-client of mine as a financial advisor. They passed the bar exams that is traditionally and mandated by law to be held once every year. The examinable subjects are: Political Law and Public International Law, Labor and Social Legislation, Civil Law, Taxation, Mercantile Law, Criminal Law, Remedial law and Legal and Judicial Ethics. This year, the passing rate is at least 75% average grade. Out of 6,608 takers the passers totalled to 1,731 or 26.21% of takers hurdled the exam. I salute my friends and all others who passed this exam.
