Meralco rate hike should be stopped at all costs

Meralco is doing it again, raising their generation and distribution charges. As if it’s not enough that the Philippines has the highest electricity rates in Asia, this Lopez-controlled firm wants to hike its prices again by as much as 5 pesos.
We the People should stop this charade. Months ago, they justified their exorbitant prices with two reasons: first, the global oil price hike and second, its summer, hence, there’s really a higher demand for electricity. Now, global oil prices are falling and its colder now but I see no difference in my electric bill.
Worst, Meralco has this cruel practice of demanding immediate payment of their charges.
These Lopezes should be stopped by the government at all costs! I don’t care if Winston Garcia gets Meralco. I don’t care if another devil in the likes of Garcia does it, but somebody has to do it.
It’s not enough that government is trying to pry open Meralco’s books. For sure, the Lopezes will just bribe government auditors sent there in their offices.
Sumusobra na ang dambuhalang Meralco. Meralco should be cracked open, and denied their franchise. The franchise should be divided and sold to other people who’ll manage the utility firm better than the Lopezes.
