The qualifications for an individual aspiring to become the President of the Philippines are outlined in Article VII, Section 2 of the 1987 Constitution. According to the constitution, an individual may become President provided he or she meets the following criteria: (1) a natural born Filipino; (2) a registered voter; (3) must be able to read and write; (4) is 40 years of age at the day of the election; and (5) must have resided in the Philippines ten years before the election is held. As history has taught us, the criteria above represent the barest minimum; to be President of the Philippines requires far more in terms integrity of character, sincerity of intentions and willingness to serve. Our speakers dissect the characters and accomplishments – as well as failings – of presidents past.

With: Maris Diokno, John Nery, Apa Ongpin, Manuel L. Quezon III.
