Of the two kinds of politics now emerging, the Philippines badly needs one that is anchored on service, not one based on self-interest.
Partido Reporma Chairman and standard-bearer Sen. Panfilo “Ping” M. Lacson stressed this Wednesday as Filipinos continue to reel from a pandemic and the effects of Typhoon Odette.
“During a pandemic and after a calamity, two kinds of politics emerge – the politics of service helps the victims; the politics of interest helps the politicians,” he said on his Twitter account.

Sa gitna ng mga seryosong problema ng bansa sa pagsapit ng Bagong Taon, ngayon ang panahon para mas tumutok tayo sa serbisyo at hindi pawang interes ng iilan.
Ito ang binigyang diin ni Senador Ping Lacson nitong Huwebes kasabay ng kanyang pag-aabot ng pasasalamat sa Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) at Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) para sa kanilang pagtulong sa pagdala ng relief assistance sa mga lugar na tinamaan ng Bagyong Odette.
Sa kanyang Twitter account, sinabi ni Lacson na tumulong ang AFP at PCG sa relief assistance nang walang ingay at palabas.

With the country continuing to face huge problems as the New Year approaches, now is the time for politics of service, not of interest.

On his Twitter account, Lacson noted the AFP and PCG helped deliver the relief assistance that he sent without fanfare.

Choose between politics of service and politics of interest, and keep in mind what renowned physicist Albert Einstein said.
These were the pieces of advice from Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson on Wednesday, as the list of candidates running in the May 2019 elections took shape.
“On May 13, 2019, let’s choose between politics of service and politics of interest. Just remember Einstein’s definition of insanity and we can do it properly this time,” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account.
He was referring to a definition of insanity widely attributed to Einstein as “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
Wednesday is the last day for the filing of certificates of candidacy by those running for local and national posts in the 2019 elections.
