Participation and Representation of Disadvantaged Groups in Parliamentary Processes in The Philippines http://localhost/UNDP4/participation-and-representation-of-disadvantaged-groups-in-parliamentary-processes-in-the-philippines/ http://localhost/UNDP4/participation-and-representation-of-disadvantaged-groups-in-parliamentary-processes-in-the-philippines/#comments Sat, 15 Dec 2012 05:17:12 +0000 admin8 http://localhost/UNDP4/?p=343 If democracy is indeed the government of, by and for the people, the voice of the majority who are poor, underserved and otherwise disadvantaged should be the dominant voice in society. However, most countries are still saddled with an unequal economic structure that privileges those who already have power and wealth not only in business and industry but also in affairs of the State. Nevertheless, believing that democratic governance is a work in progress, many members of the disadvantaged sectors have taken that idea seriously and have undertaken to have their views heard in the corridors of power. At the same time, the State, and individual political leaders have also opened avenues for their participation and representation in the parliamentary and other decision making processes. These efforts on both sides can go a long way towards making democracy realizable as the rule of the people.
