The Eight Norms of Conduct of Public Officials

Not intended to promote a coffee brand. I was just cold that I have to have something to keep me warm. We were allowed to have coffee, anyway.
I attended the last session of my Ethics subject for my MBA and we discussed about good governance, ethical standards expected of a public official and the like. One of the reporters said that a public officer should earn public trust--which I totally agree.

Another thing that was discussed were the 8 norms of conduct of public officials:

1. Common public interest 
2. Professionalism
3. Justness and sincerity
4. Political neutrality
5. Responsiveness to public
6. Nationalism and patriotism
7. Commitment to democracy
8. Simple living

If only these eight are being practiced by all government officials and employees, then, probably our courts will not trial a public official for graft and corruption.

Blessed is the nation whose God is LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
Psalm 33:12

The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
Psalm 9:17,20
