The Maguindanao Massacre refers to the election-related mass killing of at least 58 people on 23 November 2009. The victims, which included some of the clan's family members, as well as 32 journalists, lawyers and civilians were on their way to the town of Shariff Aguak to file a certificate of candidacy on behalf of Buluan, Maguindanao Vice Mayor Datu Ismail "Toto" Mangudadatu, who was running for governor in the province, when they were abducted and later killed by heavily armed men allegedly belonging to the Ampatuan Clan. The Massacre is regarded by the Committee to Protect Journalists as the single deadliest attack against journalists in history. The date of the massacre, November 23, was recently declared as the International Day to End Impunity by the International Freedom of Expression Exchange.

"It is only seven months until the next elections! Advertisements of candidates are shown every commercial breaks and campaign posters and banners fill the streets. Presidential wannabes are also being asked on their stand on events or issues currently faced by the country. When my teacher asked what I want to be when I grow up, I answered that I want to be a President so I can serve my country. What are the qualifications to run for President? -Louise"


It's always good to hear that the youth wants to give their best for the country. To run for the top post, one must be a natural born citizen of the Philippines; a registered voter; able to read and write; at least 40 years of age on the day of election; and a resident of the Philippines for at least 10 years preceding the election. Study hard, be a good citizen and example to your friends, and be a good follower to be a good leader. Good luck on reaching your dreams!
