Post-election: Let’s move on! 


By Johanne Margarette R. Macob 


EVER wondered what the winners and, of course, the not-so-lucky contenders do after elections? There is no precise data on that, perhaps. But as far as I am concerned, this is what I think:  I believe both sides celebrate: the victors surely do some partying while the latter have their own version of hanging loose as well.

The winners hold bashes, especially honoring those who have helped them during the campaign. On the other hand, the non-winners might also organize a gathering to thank their supporters and afterwards either move on and forward (to focus on business, other careers) or file an electoral complaint.

Everyone has the right to either celebrate or grieve, but to linger with the current state… hmm, I think that’s the only thing that should not be done. Hanging on is just useless and pathetic.

Well, there is the public that needs the services that were promised to be delivered (at least by the winners) and for the non-victors, hey, there is your whole life outside of politics and it needs you as much as you need it.

The day passes along with the notion of you moving ahead as well.  The just concluded election is just one of the thousand days of your life, it is just one of the many facets that make up your existence. Again, it is just one.

Indeed, there is life after election, whether you’ve triumphed or suffered defeat: life goes on so should you move along with it too.

To everyone — the leaders, the frustrated leaders, and the rest of the populace — let us all do our part for ourselves, our families, and for our community. The election is done, and a lot of things are ought to be done. Blessings come to everybody!
