With 178 party lists vying for our attention this coming May 9 National Elections, the task to select one (and only one) deserving group for proportional representation in the Lower House becomes an exercise in futility if we do not make any effort to get to know them better. But if we try to focus on one or two, the choice becomes clear.
ARTE Partylist is one such coalition that should merit our vote. For starters, the people behind it are not traditional politicians who just want to grab power. They are well-meaninged individuals who aim to make a significant difference for the creative industry in general. And if you think pageantry, fashion and the like is one sector that is merely skin-deep, think again. It is high time to get representation in the government in order to submit laws that will protect the welfare of a great many.
Listening to 1st Nominee Shamcey Supsup-Lee speak, one can feel her utmost sincerity and passion in becoming an instrument for change. Honestly, I’ve never heard her talk about the subject more fervently as she did yesterday afternoon during the Press Conference.
There must be a reason why #ARTEPartyList is #143 on the ballot. The three-digit number symbolizes #ILoveYou. It also makes for an easy recall when deciding which one to vote.
So if I were you, vote for #Arte. You simply can’t do no wrong with it.
