ISSUES REGARDING THE NOYNOY AQUINO ADMINISTRATION
There are a lot of issues faced by our dear President Benigno Aquino III or simply known as PNoy.

1. Qualification on the Position

First, let's admit the fact that he wasn't voted into office because of actual qualifications. He was a lackluster lawmaker in congress and didn't exactly make impressions in terms of his career. He coasted along until his mother died. Suddenly everybody thought it would be a good idea to vote him into office as president. It was what is expected of the son of the late Benigno and Cory Aquino, both great former presidents of the Philippines. He lacks charisma or even basic public speaking abilities. The media has a lot of bad comments especially when he speaks with the press. He commits a lot of stupid pronouncements and sometimes what he says is beyond comprehension. He should get himself a media coach to train him in handling himself around the press and the whole country.

2. Hacienda Luisita

With the ascent of President Benigno Aquino III to the presidency, the future of Hacienda Luisita has become a focus of attention. This issue was supposed to be settled decades ago. But the Hacienda Luisita management failed to do their part on the agreement. Even though the agreement to settle the decades-old clash is included on the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), the present machinations of the management is seen as deceptive as they only opt to give more than 1,000 hectares of land plus cash instead of distributing to farmers the more than 4,000 hectares already designated by the Department of Agrarian Reform for distribution to farmer-beneficiaries.

There’s a report on Noynoy Aquino saying he’s got less than one percent share of the hacienda. Then, in another story, he was quoted as saying they could have gotten at least P3 billion if the 4,500-hectare land were sold at P4.5 billion. In one story, Noynoy was quoted as saying that they would give up the land; he was backed

    unless privatization and commercialization of public education persists. This had been a constant battle of those who contradicts the handing out of State Universities and Colleges(SUCs) to private corporation.
