Be the solution, priest tells students
Former Pampanga governor Father Eduardo “Among Ed” Panlilio told University of the Philippines students in Quezon City that miracles can happen in politics.
In an address on prospects for changing Philippine politics and society, Panlilio said that reforms he introduced in Pampanga showed that it is “possible to have transparency, accountability, people participation, respect for ecology, humility and dignity in public service.”
He urged students to “be hopeful” and to “be a solution to the problem.”
He added that he now hopes to resume his priestly ministry following his failed bid for re-election.
