Now that we are in the season where the will of the people is greater than the law, then nothing should stop PDU30 from appointing Senator Marcos to a cabinet post and just simply disregard the law barring him from doing so. After all 14 million voted for BBM and 16 million fir him and such appointment will be in accordance with the will of the people.
People should also not protest if PDU30 disregards the tenure of Chairs Tati Licuanan of CHED and Chito Gascon of CHR since these two are not elected officials and have only the law on their side but such would not be enough to match the 16 million who voted for the next Ptesident.
We have entered a very dangerous period and I blame COMELEC for being its hand-maiden. Now, the rule of law has been effectively undermined and the will of the people has now been prostituted and diminished to become no longer the cornerstone of democracy but as a lynchpin to destabilize it.
Karma will surely be when the COMELEC Commissioners will wail on their rights to their tenure in accordance with the rule of law, which they just compromised. They better hope and pray that the will of the people will be personified by PDU30 and his 16 million mandate (could be actually more if rumors are true), and not by the force of a lynch mob storming the gates of the Palacio del Gobernador.
