Code of Conduct | My CommentarySections 4(A)

(a) The people’s concerns, though they be citizen or foreigner, comes first. – “…uphold the public interest over and above personal interest.”

(b) They ignore their duty and the rights of the people. – “They shall enter public service with utmost devotion and dedication to duty.”

(c) LIARS, depriving the people, overcharging and ANTI-LAW – “Public officials and employees shall remain true to the people at all times. They must act with justness and sincerity and shall not discriminate against anyone, especially the poor and the underprivileged. They shall at all times respect the rights of others, and shall refrain from doing acts contrary to law…”

a. “…shall remain true to the people at all times,”

b. “respect the rights of others,”

c. “…refrain from doing acts contrary to law…”

(d) BIAS, favouritism, bribery and negligent which leads to laziness. – “…provide service to everyone…”

(e) RED-TAPE, seeks to charge the highest amount possible by thinking on issuing a receipt will excuse their wrong doing. They never explain their policies but expects you to already know them. They tell you to “follow the system” which is never explained but left void for you to fill in the blanks which might be their way on saying “do whatever we say even if it is right or wrong.” – “Public officials and employees shall:

a. extend prompt, courteous, and adequate service to the public

b. provide information of their policies and procedures in clear and understandable language,

c. ensure openness of information,

d. encourage suggestions

e. avoid red tape

(f) To be “Loyal” is to show respect to citizens, as well as foreigners, by being a role model of the people by showing that the laws are good and just. To mistreat a foreigner, all because they are not Filipino, and to deprive them of dual process is nothing but being bias and showing disrespect to the country you sworn to defend. – “…be loyal to the Republic and to the Filipino people”

(g) The Constitution is treated like wallpaper, good for decoration only, they ignore it by never seeking to uphold it, and they use R.A. laws, by twisting them, never to uphold them but for only personal gain. – “…public accountability…” “They shall at all times uphold the Constitution and put loyalty to country above loyalty to persons or party.”

(h) They desire money more than honest service by forcing payments that might not even be required for either their own pockets or to make the office of Manila look highly upon them for collecting large amounts. – “Simple living. – Public officials and employees and their families shall lead modest lives appropriate to their positions and income. They shall not indulge in extravagant or ostentatious display of wealth in any form.”
