Ad Hoc Parties


(Editor’s note: Parties in RP are formed from election to election and have no known and specific platforms as noted by the author.)In the last five days, voters and non-voters tended to waste an hour or two if it was necessary for all presidential candidates to subject themselves to a thorough sanity test.There’s one point poor/lazy staff work betrayed itself: All presidential candidates, except for one or two, were known public figures before filing their CoCs on or before December 1, 2009.Erap, the oldestErap, as the oldest candidate, has been in the thick of a political struggle since 1963, when Noynoy was three years old.
