As the true meaning of democracy is still evolving in the Philippines, the need for a clear structure of governance in the country is strongly felt by many Filipinos. The use of electronic devices in governance proves to be viably effective in many administrative set-ups. This article articulates the necessity for the Philippine government to shift to electronic governance to respond faster to the public demand for quality service. The authors envision a government set-up that uses ICTs, promotes information literacy infused with cultural values, and democratizes information governance to strengthen relationship between the government and her constituencies.
