Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting Releases 2013 Voting Guide

MANILA, Feb. 18, 2013— The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting has released guidelines to Catholic voters on how they should choose their candidates in the May 2013 automated elections.
The Catholic Church-backed poll watchdog said the guidelines aims to help voters choose the right candidates who will lead the nation.
The 10 Commandments for Responsible Voting is contained in the booklet titled “Pinoy Big Voter”, a voter’s education manual made by the PPCRV.
The manual also contains the Church’s social teachings, compilation of various pastoral statements of the Catholic hierarchy on elections, and information about the automated election system.
Henrietta de Villa, PPCRV national chairperson, said the manual is about the power of voters “that is equal in value with the rich and famous…”
“It’s not about size, your size… big or small, XL or XXL. It’s about your importance, your power as a voter,” de Villa said.
“It is only during elections when you exercise your right and responsibility to vote that indeed you are Pinoy Big Voter! Beholden to none but your conscience, your country and your God,” she said.
The PPCRV head added that elections are a vital element in the restoration of politics.
“We see it as imperative to make alive our PPCRV vision of CHAMP – Clean, Honest, Accurate, Meaningful, and Peaceful – elections as a first step towards such restoration,” said de Villa. (CBCPNews)
