AS DOTC Secretary, critics have said that Mar was slow in making decisions.
The public should bear in mind that:
Mar was DOTC Secretary for only 13 months!
The Aquino administration inherited a very large number of projects that were being criticized for poor quality under the Arroyo administration.
While DOTC Secretary, Roxas and his team had to verify that the projects were flawless before they could float them for international bidding.
Without verification, the government risked legal impediments, longer implementation delays and huge litigation costs.
Despite his achievements in such a short time, he is, to date, blamed for traffic and the MRT as if these complicated issues can be solved in such a short time.
It is absolutely preposterous to suggest that Mar is indecisive and incompetent.
