Sara: Unite sans colors after polls
CALATAGAN, Batangas – LAKAS-Christian-Muslim Democrats (LAKAS-CMD) vice presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte on Thursday urged Filipinos to unite behind the new wave of leaders who will be elected in the May 9 polls, stressing there should be no more pink, yellow, green, red, blue and other political colors.
“Ang sinasabi po namin ay dapat ‘yung mga ma-elect na lider pagkatapos ng halalan ay hihilain lahat, walang kulay – pink, yellow, green, blue, red – walang kulay, hihilain lahat patungo sa tuloy-tuloy na kaunlaran ng ating bansa,” Duterte told supporters at the Calatagan gymnasium here.
“Ang mensahe po namin ng UniTeam ni (former senator Ferdinand) Bongbong Marcos at ni Sara Duterte ay dalawa. Una po ang pagkakaisa. Unity, nasa pangalan po namin ‘yan, gusto naming lagyan ng mukha ang kasabihan na, ‘In unity, there is strength,” Duterte explained.
Duterte said the other message UniTeam wants to spread among Filipinos is their tandem’s commitment to pursue the reforms and programs started by her father, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
“‘Yun po ay ang infrastructure development spending, o ang paggastos ng gobyerno sa mga tulay, mga daan, mga patubig, at iba-iba pang proyekto sa buong bansa,” Duterte said.
Duterte added that she and Marcos would also pursue the campaign against criminality.
“Dahil nga, sinasabi natin, pagkakaisa at kapayapaan para sa ating bansa,” she stressed.
Duterte also cited the need to offer Filipinos quality education that would enable them to compete for jobs not only in the country but also abroad.
Batangas Gov. Hermilando Mandanas, Vice Gov. Mark Leviste and House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez, who is Lakas-CMD president, were among national and local officials who attended the event.
