Local and national elections in the Philippines are long, gruelling, rowdy, festive punctuated by a number of assassinations, and exorbitant. Campaigning costs an arm and a leg due to the increasing number of voters that candidates need to satisfy/entertain/convince by being visible on TV, print and radio, supporters that need to eat, hangers-on that need shirts, ballers and fans, and the actors that need to get paid for endorsing the candidates out of “goodwill”. Vote buying is also an option for the segurista (candidates who want assurance to win).
In a little over two months, Filipinos will vote for the president who will the country for the next six years. I hope Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte will win it and fulfill even a quarter of his promises. I will be overjoyed if that happens. Since I am supporting Mayor Duterte, this entry is all about campaign materials for him, by and from his supporters. For more Rodrigo Duterte campaign materials, please read Elections 2016 – Campaign Materials, Part II.
Since Mayor Rodrigo Duterte does not have millions of pesos to burn, he encourages his supporters to make their own campaign materials to help him win the presidential elections. It is the bayanihan spirit at its hilt.
What are you waiting for? Make a poster or print some stickers for Mayor Duterte. Change is coming.
