My dad – Comelec Commissioner Moslemen T. Macarambon Sr. a former RTC Judge in Iligan City who is been serving the Judiciary for over 30years. He is just appointed to one of the two vacancies at the Commission on Elections (Comelec). It’s reported in Philippine Star.
He’s appoinment was been in buzzing since January this year. But his appointment was delayed because of the upcoming National Election last May. I believe it was delayed because the time of his appointment to avoid election issues like what the Manila Star reported – Militant groups warn of new appointments to Comelec.
MALACAÑANG is bent on appointing a new “Virgilio Garcillano” in the Commission on Elections to rig the midterm election in May, a party-list representative said Wednesday.
After reading this news i was sort of emotional and pissed of. The statement came from militant group Akbayan’s Risa Hontiveros. I almost blog about it to defend my dad but i just keep silent since my dad is not yet appointed and i believe my dad is a good man and public servant. The message of Akbayan’s Risa Hontiveros and her group was unfair and not just. Does she knows my Dad well? Does she and her group knows that he is the fiercest and the most feared Judge in Lanao Province because of his integrity and his case decision is not for sale. He also garnered some awards like one of the Most Outstanding Judges in Philippines. I bet NOT she doesn’t know about this!
Now all election is over from National Election and Brgy/SK Election i think this is the right and due time to appoint him.
My mom and dad just call me this early morning informing me about the appointment. I received another reminders to be good and my responsibilities being a son of Comelec Commissioner. I should be careful on my actions to avoid issues that will reflect on my Dad’s image since we also have the same name. Yeah i’m a prodigal son being struggling to keep up the standard and achievements of my dad. Now he is a Comelec Commissioner the pressure is more on me to be a good son. I’m proud of my Dad and i really do appreciate all the things he’s done for me since my birth until now.
I believe he deserve the post of Comelec Commissioner and he has the integrity to restore the people’s trust in the poll body.
Congrats dad! Being your son and namesake i was so proud of you and i’m ashamed i can’t keep up with you. In some ways or another i will do best in my field of endeavor and someday i will make you more proud as your son.
