Ping advises Cavitenos to choose a worthy leader.
MANILA, Philippines — Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson, a presidential candidate, reminded voters on Friday night of Cavite’s position as the republic’s birthplace, urging them to be patriotic reformers like the revolutionaries of the past by electing a great leader.
Lacson called for a “quiet revolution” before a gathering of about 50,000 people who attended his and vice presidential running mate, Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III’s grand rally in Carmona, Cavite.
“I’m a nanawagan sa inyo. Maglunsad tayo ng isang rebolusyon, inaanyayahan ko kayo. There will be no rebolusyon ng pinaglaban ng ating mga ninuno, ng ating mga bayani. Ito po ay isang tahimik na rebolusyon kung saan ang ating gamit ay ang ating mga panulat upang i-shade sa balota ang mga pangalan ng mga dapat at karapat-dapat na mamuno sa ating bansa Our predecessors did not launch a revolution against conquerors and invaders. This is a stealthy revolution in which we will darken the names of outstanding leaders in our ballots with our pens), “he stated
Lacson stated that the people could not afford to make the wrong decision since the future of the Filipino people was at stake.
“Nananawagan po ako, ulitin ko.” Huwag na huwag po tayong magkamali sa May 9, sa Lunes, kapag tayo ay naglakad papunta sa ating mga polling stations at tayo ay nagsimulang pumili ng ating mga kandidato. Ang susunod na henerasyon ng Pilipino ay buhay ng ating mga anak at magiging anak ng ating mga anak, ang nakasalalay ng ating mga anak. Ialay ang ating boto sa kanila (I reiterate my appeal to our fellow Filipinos.) Let us not make the incorrect choice on Monday, May 9, when we go to the polling precincts to elect our leaders. Our decision will affect the life of our children and their children. Let us make our votes count for them),” he remarked.
“Huwag natin payagan na ang ating kabataan ay mawalan ng pag-asa sa ating bayan. Ang Pilipinas may pag-asa. Cavite could use some help. Carmona, may pag-asa. Allowing our youths and the future generation to lose hope in our country is unacceptable. There is hope in the Philippines, and there is hope in Carmona and Cavite. There is always hope as long as the appropriate leaders are chosen).”
Lacson emphasized that he and Sotto have the experience and track record to provide Filipinos with the leadership they require and to handle the country’s problems.
He also urged voters to elect Minguita Padilla, Guillermo Eleazar, Emmanuel “Manny” Piol, JV Ejercito, and Gregorio Honasan II as senatorial candidates.
Meanwhile, Sotto believes that May 9 will provide Filipinos with much-needed hope.
He said, “Pagkakataon na natin ito, Pilipinas!”
