A friend and a fellow, Jesus Nicanor "Nick" Perlas has finally declared his intentions to become the next President of the Philippines come 2010. Nick Perlas is the first presidentiable who can truly say that he loves the environment and had truly done something about it. He was instrumental in stopping the creation of at least 19 nuclear plants in the country way back during the Marcos era. He is also instrumental in banning poisonous and dangerous pesticides that affect farmers. Nicanor Perlas is also one of the inspirations to the United Nations Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). He is a personality well recognized not only in the Philippines but arount the world and finally he declared himself as an alternative choice for 2010.

“There are many Filipinos who have grown tired of elections where there are no real choices. We are tired of always having to choose the lesser evil. This is why I am announcing my intention to run in the 2010 elections,” Perlas told some 50 friends and supporters at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani park in Quezon City.

Would a person like Nick Perlas win in an otherwise money and popularity centered elections? When personally asked his definite answer was, "Yes, absolutely!"

Since early May 2009 and even a year ago he is contemplating on what to do and how to help his country. Nicky had tired not to go into politics because he is a person that does not what limelight but instead he prefer to work the best he can in order to achieve things and make a difference.

He is the author and main proponent of the Philippine Agenda 21, which was dubbed by the United Nations as the most democratic and most detailed plan yet for achieving the Global Agenda 21 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was this PA 21 which was used by then President Fidel V. Ramos to start bringing back the lush of our slowly decapitating environment in 1992. It was also PA 21 which is now being revived by NEDA under former Senator Ralph Recto to breath life into Sustainable Development and Climate Change adaptation.

If there is someone who could truly work with people and the masses, it is Nicanor Perlas.

If there is someone who can truly change this country and inspire people to do so, it is Nicanor Perlas.

If there is the so called Obama of the Philippines then it is definitely Nicanor Perlas.

If there is someone whom we can trust, it is Nicanor Perlas.

If there is someone who understand the people of this country, it is Nicanor Perlas.

These are some of my assessment about Nicanor Perlas. It is based on how I know of this person and based on his qualifications. This is for me... what about for you or the other voters?

I think it is time not to just based on personality but also on the qualifications and platform of the candidate. Let us give him a chance.
