India’s ruling political party has won a crucial state election, strengthening the ability to push through a development agenda in the worlds fastest growing major economy. Of the five state elections being counted over the weekend, one result especially loomed large, that off central India’s Uttar Pradesh, home to more than 200 million people. the staggered five-week vote in that state alone marks the biggest election in the world in 2017.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janta Party or the BJP, won in a landslide, taking a total of 312  over 75% of the 403 seats on offer in the biggest majority for any party in Uttar Pradesh since 1980.

The clear majority means the BJP will be able to form a state government without the help of other parties. In previous Uttar Pradesh election in 2012, the BJP ony won 47 seats. 2017’s votes marks a significant endorsement for Modi, the leader of BJP, and the face of its campaign across state elections.

Philippine Government

Philippine Government

The Philippines is a democratic and republican State. Sovereignity resides in the people and all government authority resides from them.

-Article II, Section 1 of 1987 Constitution.

The Philippines is a republic with a presidential form of government wherein power is equally divided among its three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. One basic corollary in a presidential system of government is the principle of separation of powers wherein legislation belongs to Congress, execution to the Executive, and settlement of legal controversies to the Judiciary.

The Legislative branch is authorized to make laws, alter, and repeal them through the power vested in the Philippine Congress. This institution is divided into the Senate and the House of Representatives. The Executive branch is composed of the President and the Vice President who are elected by direct popular vote and serve a term of six years. The Constitution grants the President authority to appoint his Cabinet. These departments form a large portion of the country’s bureaucracy. The Judicial branch holds the power to settle controversies involving rights that are legally demandable and enforceable. This branch determines whether or not there has been a grave abuse of discretion amounting to lack or excess of jurisdiction on the part and instrumentality of the government. It is made up of a Supreme Court and lower courts. The Constitution expressly grants the Supreme Court the power of Judicial Review as the power to declare a treaty, international or executive agreement, law, presidential decree, proclamation, order, instruction, ordinance or regulation unconstitutional. (http://www.gov.ph/about/gov/)

Last July 31, 2016 new administration opened as Rodrigo Roa Duterte officially seated as the new president of the Republic of the Philippines. One of his memorable line on his speech was, “Change must start with us and in us.” Truly, many has happened and still happening for the past months of his term whether it is for good of many or few, time will tell.

COMPARATIVE CRIME STATISTICS 2016

Communication Secretary Martin Andanar claimed that the Philippines is now a “safer place”.

In contrast, the number of people that killed has risen since Duterte launched his anti-drug campaign. A total of 5,882 people have been killed across the country since President Rodrigo Duterte launched his war on illegal drugs, PNP data showed.

Human rights advocates are however alarmed over how the anti-drug drive may be encouraging police abuses and summary executions.

The PNP is currently investigating 1,067 unexplained killings, which dela Rosa said, were not all drug related.
