Samira Gutoc cries after being abandoned by youth over political choices

Despite her questionable political moves, Gutoc said she never lost her principles and will always be against corruption

Civic leader Samira Gutoc resorted to tears after claiming that the youth had abandoned her due to recent political choices.

Gutoc said she had dedicated her “heart and soul” to the younger generation, making their decision to desert her all the more painful. In a viral video, she is seen crying while talking about how much pain she’s dealing with.

Gutoc said she never lost her principles despite her questionable political moves and will always be against corruption.

“Hindi ako nawala sa prinsipyo ko. Politician ako pero I will stand against corruption, I will stand against what’s wrong pero I have to win. I have to win an election tas iniwanan ako ng mga kabataan,” she shared.

Her efforts were wasted as her path to becoming a senator is now more blurry than ever.

I gave my heart and soul to the youth. Sabi ko, I represented you in everything and this is what I get for representing you, for being honest, for being everything that is hated,” she added.

She first ran for Senate under Otso Diretso but failed miserably. Her initial plan for the 2022 elections was to run with Vice President Leni Robredo but Aksyon Demokratiko gave her an offer she can’t refuse.

Gutoc later reasoned that she went with Mayor Isko Moreno to escape her old party’s “echo chamber”.

She was known as a critic of the Duterte administration but flipped when Moreno expressed his president’s support.

At the end of the day, Gutoc can’t blame anyone but herself.

Moreno’s camp has also taken shots at Robredo on multiple occasions and Gutoc not doing anything about it only worsens her situation.
