SENATOR Panfilo lacson on Thursday said freedom of the media and transparency of government will get a premium under his presidency.

Lacson, who is running for President under Partido Reporma, said there is no reason for the government to hide what it is doing if it is not involved in any wrongdoing.

“Una, ang freedom of the press hindi lang importante sa demokrasya. It is democracy itself,” he said at the first LACSON-SOTTO media forum.

“Bakit kami kailangan magtago? I’m all for it,”he added.

For his part, Sotto – who is running for Vice President under the Nationalist People’s Coalition – vowed to uphold freedom of information.

“We will pursue freedom of information,” he said.

Meanwhile, Lacson reiterated he and Sotto are prepared to present solutions to the country’s problems. He said he stressed this anew in a meeting Wednesday eveningwith ambassadors.

“May nakahanda kaming solution, katulong namin mga expert sa kani-kanilang fields of interest. Nakahanda kami magbigay ng solusyon sa problema sa ating bansa,” he said.
