Liberal party standard-bearer Mar Roxas has vowed to correct the mistakes of the current Aquino administration.
In the hopes of getting the support of undecided voters, administration- backed presidential candidate Roxas promised to fix and correct the mistakes of the Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino administration in the event he and vice presidential candidate Leni Robredo win the election.
Speaking at a media briefing for their campaign rally in Naga City, Roxas said he knows of the government’s shortcomings and the people’s complaints and he assured them that he will immediately address these in their first 100 days in office once elected.
“I know deciding whom to vote for will not be easy for you. Maybe you have chosen other candidates already. But we also know that the government has its shortcomings and that your complaints are valid. Pero tulad ng parati naming sinasabi ni Leni (Robredo): kung may kulang, pupunuan natin. Kung may mali, itatama natin,” he said.
(I know deciding whom to vote for will not be easy for you. Maybe you have chosen other candidates already. But we also know that the government has its shortcomings and that your complaints are valid. But as I and Leni (Robredo) always said; if there are inadequacies we will fill it in, if there are mistakes we will correct them.)
Roxas also vouched that the Roxas-Robredo administration will have a strong will in implementing reforms and in correcting the mistakes of the past administrations.
“Gagamitan namin ito ng matinding political will. Masasagasaan na kung sinong dapat masagasaan, pero hindi kami papayag na mababalewala itong mga hinaing ninyo,” he said.
(We will use strong political will. No one will be spared, we will not let your grievances left unheard)
While Roxas vowed to correct the admin’s mistakes he also acknowledged its gains. He also asked the voters to rally with them in boosting the gains of this administration for the next six years.
“Nananawagan po ako sa inyong lahat. Samahan n’yo na po kami ni Leni. Malayo na po ang narating natin, pero mas mas malayo pa ang mararating natin kung magsama po tayo at siguraduhin po natin ang panalo ng malinis, ng tapat, ng hayag na pamamahala,” Roxas said.
(I’m asking all of you to join us (me and Leni). We’ve gone far, but we can still move farther if we will unite in championing a clean and honest administration.)
