The Makati Business Club applauds and fully supports the appointment of Atty. Andres Bautista as Chairman of the Commission on Elections. Atty. Bautista brings with him not only a reputation for demonstrated competence and integrity, he also has the added advantages of being appointed at the peak of his career and of possessing proven executive capabilities as manifested in his previous role as chief executive officer of a major property development group. All these qualities will serve Atty. Bautista extremely well in his new role. MBC is prepared to be of whatever assistance may be deemed appropriate. Our congratulations to Atty. Bautista and the new COMELEC commissioners.
