1st 100 days in Governance, Results Matter; an Understanding Choices Forum is one of the Understanding Choices Forums in which the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. has organized a number of times with varied topics. The forum will be on Thursday, August 5 at 1:30 p.m. at the Bryant George Hall of the Eduardo Aboitiz Development Studies Center, Lopez Jaena St., Cebu City.

The forum aims to provide the public with in-depth understanding on the origin, significance, and implications of the first 100 days of a newly elected official. The term “first 100 days” has been used in the political parlance as an arbitrary benchmark to gauge how a high-ranking public official will fair in his term of office by his first hundred days.

It will feature the 100 days agenda lined up by Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama for his constituents in the context of his three-year roadmap for governance and development. The forum will provide participants and the general public a venue to know and understand, to voice concerns and make informed choices in support of the 100 days agenda of Mayor Rama. The forum will also provide inputs on the origin of the so called 1st 100 day’s tradition among newly elected officials, its meaning and implications to the entire term of office, and relevance to their constituency.

Leaders and members of local government units, government agencies, non-government and civil society organizations, academe, youth groups, business, media, religious, and other organizations are expected to attend the forum.
