Leadership Vacuum? I don't think so. I know a lot of brilliant Filipinos, some of them are very prominent in Facebook who are just waiting to be called for duty to serve the country. The problem with this Administration is that the Liberal Party is monopolizing the leadership positions.
What? The govt did not receive application letters and resume of the the good ones? OF COURSE! The good ones will NEVER submit application. You have to identify them and REACH OUT to them and visit them personally to RECRUIT them in government service. Ohhhh Government, you are not a class-A in terms of pay, the good ones will not apply in your institutions. But always believe that these good ones are willing to serve the country. You just have to be "CREATIVE" to get them into the service. If you just sit there reading resume and application that you receive, you will just be getting the best of the junks.
