What will voters look for in candidates in 2022?

As early as now, local and national candidates vying for public office in the 2022 elections should have already established their respective policies and communications teams.

The 2022 elections are about rebuilding our economy. And whoever candidate could connect with the voters would have greater chances of winning.

Majority of the voters are workers, youth, and senior citizens.

This segment of voters is looking for candidates who will ensure cheap of basic necessities; who will improve the infrastructure, rehabilitate existing mass transport and logistical system; and who would secure better services of SSS, Pag-Ibig, and Philhealth.

They need someone who will prioritize agriculture and manufacturing supply chain infrastructure projects.

The voters are also looking for candidates who will work to introduce a government cash subsidy scheme to workers that would augment buying power of the existing minimum wage rate.

Workers are searching for reforms in the moribund existing wage-setting mechanism in the country and make it more relevant to the needs of business and workers.

Alisin na ang provincial wage rate at gumawa ng uniform wage rate na ipatutupad sa buong bansa.

Uniform wage rates will also decentralize, depopulate NCR and help revive potential rural economic growth areas.

Realizing the lack of job opportunities, the brain drain phenomenon and the social cost effect on Filipino families, voters will vote for candidates who will help lay the groundwork for a legislated industry-wide wage setting and collective bargaining between workers and business owners.

Napaka-importante na sa LGU level pa lang, service and people-oriented na ang poise.

Voters need someone who will strive to improve local government services such as health and livelihood, among others, by empowering government workers function to serve constituents better.

Siyempre, candidates who will work to institutionalize flexible arrangements to facilitate medium and small scale enterprises’ access to loans, eliminate barriers to logistics and movement of workers, rehabilitate existing transportation infrastructures, leverage disruptive technologies to help businesses adapt, ensure prioritization of agriculture and manufacturing supply chain infrastructure projects, among others are very, very attractive to the voters.
