(Re-published) A friend and an active Filipino community leader in the Kingdom (name withheld) called me last night and reminded me of the consequences that I might be getting into in the world of Philippine politics. He is referring to our e-group named Partido Pangdaigdigang Pilipino, PPP for short. He added that like any other e-group some individuals might be using it in their personal political interest (PPP- Party for Personal Political ambition).
He maybe be right or wrong, everyone has the right of opinion. But from the start it never occurred to me that PPP will be utilized in one way or the other for political interest of few aspiring politicians.
Being one of the prime mover in the creation of this e-group, it was formed primarily as a forum or a venue to interact other Filipino communities worldwide whose objective is to discuss and possibly unite Global Filipinos for political empowerment.
PPP is not yet a political party of Overseas Filipinos, it was created as the starting point or the first step towards OFW political empowerment. As what I’ve said never regret joining this group.
However, PPP is aiming that it will be a political party in the future for overseas Filipinos represented by various Filipino groups worldwide.
