President Aquino has tapped another member of Akbayan party-list group to serve as his undersecretary for political affairs.

Tomasito S. Villarin will replace Ibarra Gutierrez III as undersecretary at the Office of the Political Adviser headed by Secretary Ronaldo Llamas. All three are members of Akbayan.

Gutierrez is a nominee of Akbayan in the party-list elections in May this year. Akbayan was the object of a disqualification case in the Commission on Elections (Comelec). It was alleged that Akbayan was not a marginalized group as evidenced by the fact that its leaders have been appointed to high positions in the government. The Comelec dismissed the complaint.

Prior to his appointment to the government, Villarin was convenor of the Reform the ARMM Now, and executive director on leave of the SIAD (Sustainable Integrated Area Development) Initiatives for Mindanao-Convergence for Asset Reform and Regional Development.

He holds master’s degrees in Development Management at the Asian Institute of Management, and in Governance and Development at the University of Sussex, United Kingdom. He took up law at San Beda College after graduating from the University of the Philippines with an Economics degree.

Villarin was Akbayan’s third nominee in the 2010 party-list elections.

    what is the ideology that Akbayan party espouses?

    if Cebu is dominated by the Garcia’s
    if the Senate is dominated by actors and a daughters of dead and living Senators
    if Congress is dominated by clan members and their kins and siblings.

    Malacanang Palace is peppered with Akbayan people.

    out of 110 million Filipinos, mga 1,000 families lang ang nag hari-hari sa Pilipinas by taking turns among themselves who shall rule in a given year?

    • HoyGago

      Akbayan is a party list with a clean streak representing a defined marginalized sector. They are made up of people who have walked the walk when it comes to helping the poor. Hindi sila mga artista, hindi sila anak ng mga kung sinong pulitiko, hindi sila miyembro ng mga political dynasty. Hindi sila trapo.

      They’ve been fighting for change for a long time. Isn’t it nice that this administration is getting those people to work in government, where they can have the opportunity to influence policy and enact actual change?

      • batangpaslit

        “representing a defined marginalized sector”. quote.

        but how come, Tsong, the news article states that “Akbayan was the object of a disqualification case in the Commission on Elections (Comelec). It was alleged that Akbayan was not a marginalized group as evidenced by the fact that its leaders have been appointed to high positions in the government”.

        except that COMELEC dismissed the complaint.

        marginalized ba ang aral sa U.P. San Beda, AIM, and U.K.?

      • http://twitter.com/akongednamzug akongednamzug

        Kung susundin natin ang yung rason kung kailan dapat ituring na marginalized ang isang grupo, (sabi mo nag-aral sa U.P., San Beda.AIM and U.K.), eh di pala natin masisi ang mga taong galit na galit noon kay Mickey Arroyo ng katawanin niya ang mga guwardiya at traysikel drayber.

    “He holds master’s degrees in Development Management at the Asian Institute of Management, and in Governance and Development at the University of Sussex, United Kingdom. He took up law at San Beda College after graduating from the University of the Philippines with an Economics degree.” – well, based on his credentials it looks like he is very qualified for the job. 

    • batangpaslit

      he is academically well prepared, pero he does not belong to a ”marginalized” group.

        If Pnoy’s performance is great, why are there so many people clawing for a chance to be OFWs?

        I mean, I guess it’s great that OFWs are anchoring the economy, but not all of them actually want to be OFWs.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/PQPOCGSITYMSD2UTYIN4TJP56U Rene

        bakit ba ngyon lang ba nagka OFW? sa panahon ng ibang presidente walang OFW? ngayon lang ba nagkaroon ng OFW sa panahon ni P-Noy?

      • tilney

        Brod mas malaki ang sweldo ng mga OFW lalo na pag Engineer at Technical  kagaya ng nasa engineering at Oil and Gas .. Eh kung ang sweldo ng OFW ay USD 5000 a month bakit naman hindi siya lalabas compared kung sa Pilipinas siya at ang logic doon yon naiwan niya pwesto ay magkaroon ng chance iyo iba na  naghahanap ng trabaho na less ang qualifications. The move taking job as an OFW’s will be a big help for all.

      • http://twitter.com/romza825 Row me oh!

        Brod ang mga politiko ay hindi na mag OFWs dahil sobra sobra ang kita nila sa pangungurakot. Ang pamilya ni Pnoy nag OFW din yan panahon ni Marcos.

    Kaya pala wala ng nagrarally or protesta laban sa gobyerno, may mga puesto na sa Gobyerno.

    Akala natin masama ang palakad ni GMA, yon pala nag aabang ng puesto sa gobyerno.

    I am sure Villarin is qualified.

    But a question that begs to be asked is why Akbayan is still considered a marginalized group.  When you have members of the group being assigned to high positions in the Executive Branch, how can they be marginalized?

        and allow its representative KAka Bag-o to disburse the amount of P140 Million worth of pork barrel to the District of Dinagat where she is running as a congressman this coming May 2013. If my memory serves me right, AKBAYAN during their street protests days denounced pork barrel as this is the source of corruption and of the politics of patronage in the Philippines making our country one of the most corrupt. This politics of pork is used by the most corrupt President GMA in silencing the Congress and now the current administration with the AKBAYAN is doing the same thing. Magkano ang cut dito Madame Partylist congressman? Pwedeng pang gastos sa eleksyon!

      You questioning this qualification? “He holds master’s degrees in Development Management at the Asian Institute of Management, and in Governance and Development at the University of Sussex, United Kingdom. He took up law at San Beda College after graduating from the University of the Philippines with an Economics degree.”

      • Your_King

        Allow myself to quote myself:

        And if you took law at San Beda and blah and blah and blah…i’m sure that’s good too.

        His master’s degree is not a guarantee that he’ll be able to his job well. Hindi na mabilang ang mga politikong may master’s degree ang nagpatakbo sa Pilipinas pero heto tayo ngayon wala pa ring asenso…we don’t need a genius to know that the pork barrel is one source of corruption..

      • Don Dee

        Ang tanong lang naman e, qualified ba? Ano mas gusto mo, manicurista ang i-appoint as board member ng GOCC? Inattempt gawin yan ni Smeagol. Here is the reality of Philippine politics, we actually have a two party system (you didn’t know that did you). It is the IN-POSITION (those in power) and the OH-POSITION (those who want to get in power). Whether you like it or not, those IN-POSITION get to assign people to cabinet positions, head GOCC’s ,etc. Alangan naman yung oh-position. E di hindi na tumakbo ang gobyerno kung ganun. Can you imagine a cabinet that always opposes the president? All that the Oh-position can do is challenge the qualification of the presidential appointees in the house (commission of appointments). Ngayon, original question, qualified ba? Yun lang ang tanong.

      • popeyee

        The person appointed is QUALIFIED. He has not committed an offense. He is NOT being charged with anything. And yet you fools want to dismiss him because he belongs to Akbayan … which is a perfectly legal political entity. It’s like demanding that Barack Obama to stop appointing Democrats into US government positions. You people are pathetic.

      • Don Dee

        Ano raw ang problema sa Akbayad. Isa-isahin ko: una ang pagiging sagad-sagarang anti-mamamayan nito a) yung CARPer law nila na gumagana raw pero napakaraming butas na pabor sa mga haciendero gaya ng boss nilang si Pnoy at malinaw na hindi para sa magsasaka b) ang pagsuporta nila sa two-tierred wage system na naglalayong pababain ang mababa ng sahod ng manggagawa c) pagsuporta nito sa budget cuts ni Pnoy sa basic social needs ng mamamayn d) wala na nga silang ginawa upang tutulan ang budget cut ni Pnoy sila pa (Akbayad youth) ang dahilan kung bakit tumaas ang tuition sa UP (20k per sem na) e)pagbubulag-bulagan nito sa pagtaas ng presyo ng langis gawa ng Oil Deregulation Law, pagtaas ng kuryente gawa ng EPIRA LAW, pagsasapribado ng batayang pangangailangan ng mga tao gaya ng ospitals, edukasyon , tubig etc. bakit? Dahil pet project ni Pnoy. pangalawa: ang pagiging double standard ng mga ito, binanatan ang China (na which is tama lang) sa panghihimasok pero nakabukaka namang pinahihintulutan ang panghihimasok ng imperyalistang US na noon pa man, matagal ng nagpapahirap sa sambayanang Pilipino at yumuyurak sa “soberanya” natin. b) tinira nito ang Sattelite launch ng N. Kor pero nung South Korea ang magpapalipad na clearly “iba-violate” ang “sovereignty” natin, nawala sila sa eksena. Bakit? dahil alyado ito ng impeng U.S na isa sa mga boss tsip nila. Pero wag na tayong masyadong lumayo sa paksa, ngayon, noong panahon ni Makapal-Arroyo tutol sila sa kuntawaging “patronage politics” pero nung sila na ang nakinabang, pinagtatanggol na nila!

        @Raciram,
        indeed, boybakal, doesn’t  claim to be some high flying personality, but boybakal says that like most filipinos, he is just an average jose or an ordinary juan. He just asked for some proof to prevent the occurence of an academic misrepresentation, or some form of “curriculum vitae window dressing”.

      I SECOND THE MOTION!!! this could be like the case of Imee Marcos who claimed to have graduated from Princeton University and on that basis was admitted into the UP college of Law and was allowed to attend classes and finish the course. In effect, she joined the roster of candidates for graduation. When UP asked for heer transcript of records from Princeton, she was not able to produce them. As such her graduation was not approved, such that the dictator ordered and held a private ceremony confirming her graduation from the UP college of Law.

    Lagi na lang AKBAYAN ang nabibigyan ng puesto..
    Bigyan naman ng puesto rin ang AKYATBAHAY….they are marginalized too.
    They need representation too as Akyatbahay is a very dangerous profession…imagine they go up without ladder.
    Give other marginalized sector of society a chance in running the affairs of the gov’t.

    Mga Filipino-Chinese ang members ng Akbayan. Wala silang pinapatawad. Pati ang Barangay election, marami nang Chinese ang nakapaso. Tignan mo ang Campostella valley, puro Chinese ang governor. He he he. Mga uto-uto talaga ang class D and E.

    i appoint na rin ang ladlad
     

    • Don Dee

      Bakit hindi? Mas may credibility pa ang ladlad kasya sa CBCP.

  • Don Dee

    Sa mga kampon ni Smeagol.

    Of course the president will appoint people who supported or allied to  him. Alangan naman mag appoint ng kontra sa kanya. You people are pathetic. You dare question this appointment of a very qualified person but turned a blind eye when Smeagol attempted to appoint a MANICURISTA as board member.

      Agreed. What is more important are their performance and contribution to the overall well-being of society and not just an extra and excess baggage to be paid by hard-earned Filipino taxpayers money.

      • Don Dee

        I think that is only fair. Judge a cabinet member or presidential appointee by his actions or inactions — not by his being close to the president. Itong mga kampon ni Gloria, gusto ata ang KAMPI pa rin ang nag a-appoint sa cabinet ni PNoy. Pero happing happy when Smeagol was midnight appointing manicuristas, hardineros. etc to GOCC’s. Pero eto ngayon, atat maka puna sa isang qualified naman. Ano sila sinuswerte? Alangan naman si Mikey Arroyo i-appoint. Number one, tanga. Number two, mandarambong. Number three, not even a good actor. Number four, di ba sekyu daw sya?  Etc. etc. etc. Here’s a dose of reality for all you fools, the president will appoint people he trusts — people from within his circle, people who supported him, people in his party. Not people who opposes him. When he promised “walang kaibigan, etc.” that means if there are complaints with the actions of his appointees, he will fire them (or bring charges against them). Yun lang yun.

    Pera-pera lang talaga ang AKBAYAD na pro-cybercrime! yaaaak! nong panahon ni GMA na lolong AYAW nila sa ganito, nong sila na ang nakinabang, pinagtatanggol na nila? 

    • Rolly257

      Dapat, sibakin ang Cybercrime Law.

  • Komen To

    Erap once said, weder weder lang yan. Although I do not like appointments from one group, I remember Gloria appointed a manicurista. The losers here are always the Filipino people.

    • Don Dee

      Yan lang ang lumabas sa media. I personally know of an aerobics instructor who became a DOT undersecretary. Don’t know why the media wasn’t able to pick up on that. Classmate ni Smeagol from Assumption (aside from being an aerobics instructor). Yun  na ang credentials nya. Among her projects as a DOT undersecretary was to make the Philippines the world’s health destination. Lol! Ano pa nga ba ma-expect mo sa isang aerobics instructor kundi kabobohang ganito. Pero milyones ginastos sa mga “official trips” abroad. Dun talaga talo ang Pinas.

    Let’s try to put things in a way (more practical I should say) that everybody may at some point understand. Trying to value empathy, if you are Pnoy it is most likely that you will put someone you trust in a position that is very much crucial. OPA is a very important office and putting someone like Tom Villarin (which is qualified I think) is not bad as long as you do not violate the existing law of the land. At the end of the day, TRUST matters. Build trust and you might be appointed too. ^_^

  • disqusted0fu

    And another one bites the dust! Who cares about performance right? As long as you are kkk, you deserve to be in position! Pnoy became president without showing essential performance, that is also how he is going to take his kkks there.

    • Don Dee

      May point ka! Mas qualified nga naman ang manicurista ni Smeagol na maging board member ng GOCC kaysa dito kay Tom Villarin who “holds master’s degrees in Development Management at the Asian Institute of Management, and in Governance and Development at the University of Sussex, United Kingdom. He took up law at San Beda College after graduating from the University of the Philippines with an Economics degree.”
