Reminders When Voting During PH Elections
People’s votes are important to the government because they allow them to participate in political and educational decisions in their country. The ideal candidate will be able to deal with the country’s current state while also portraying Filipinos in a positive light in other nations.
Remember To Vote Wisely
Voters should consider the candidates’ ideals and personality traits when selecting a political leader. When it’s finally time to elect a new president, these will help us make an educated decision. For leadership positions, only those with excellent goals and purposes should be considered. Examine the candidate’s policies to determine if it contains initiatives to enhance the lives of Filipinos in other countries.
The Importance of Overseas Voting
The upcoming national elections have a lot riding on them. Furthermore, the significance of votes cast by Filipinos living in other countries cannot be overstated. Over a million Filipinos have emigrated to other nations to live or work. Their revenues help to boost the country’s economy.
Despite the fact that there is just a tiny Filipino population in Austria, Filipinos in Austria are united by their links to the country, families, and shared experiences of living abroad – some for decades or more.
Historically, many Filipino nurses in Austria wanted to work in the U.S., but they also didn’t know much about Austria. Thus, their decision to migrate to this country seemed like an uninteresting choice.
Many Filipino nurses worked in Austria due to the better wages they got there, as well as the opportunity to care for their families back home. They also felt that they were contributing to the country’s welfare.
Because the majority of these people are breadwinners, they have influence over their families’ domestic decisions. As a result, every vote cast by a Filipino residing overseas is important; make sure yours is as well.
We only have a short time to prepare for the new leaders who will change the destiny of our country as Election Day approaches.
Many people are astonished by the number of persons who have displayed their ability to lead the country, as well as the presence of dubious others claiming to be “the one” – but isn’t that true of every election?
As a result, your vote will be crucial in electing a president with the necessary abilities and experience to guide the country through these trying times.
It would be wonderful to have a leader who could cope with the country’s current crisis while also projecting a positive image in the international community.
Leaders who are devoted to democracy and freedom are essential for the country to achieve its objectives. It is critical that we all work together to strengthen the country when we choose the leaders for future elections. Let us use our collective strength, represented via our ballots, to improve our home country, the Philippines, regardless of where we are in the world.
Will you be permitted to vote in the next elections now that the certified list of overseas voters has been made public? Under the supervision and guidance of the Philippine diplomatic mission in Austria, how was the verification procedure carried out? Do you have any recommendations for Filipinos planning to vote in this year’s national elections? Is there anything else you’d like to say to other Filipinos who could be in your shoes? In the comments area below, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Also, please forward this information to any interested friends or family members.
