The Philippines has a lot to learn from the United States’ recent election, which saw Donald Trump booted out of power despite a possible second term.

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon stayed up to watch the oath-taking and inaugural address of new US President Joe Biden.

“The American experience showed the world that the strength of America’s democracy is the premium given to ideals & institutions, not interests; the importance of purpose, not personalities,” the politiko said. “But that strength isn’t dependent just on the leader. The people must wield it themselves.”
