By Manuel L. Quezon III
Most voters have already made up their minds, but it isn’t enough for a cheat-proof win for the leading contenders. As the campaign becomes increasingly ferocious, the candidates might gain or lose small percentages but all of them need to find a way to set themselves apart from the rest and demonstrate what most voters are hoping to find, after a decade of missed opportunities: leadership.
The challenge of leadership hinges on the willingness—or reluctance—of the candidates to take a stand on the President going beyond toying with the idea of voiding the coming elections by means of martial law to actively pursuing it as a viable contingency plan.
