The camp of presidential aspirant Rodrigo Duterte called “shameless and loathsome” the Liberal Party’s use of government resources to advance the candidacy of LP standard-bearer Manuel Roxas 2nd.
This was after a photo surfaced on social media showing a government vehicle transporting campaign materials of Roxas.
Paola Alvarez, the spokesman for Duterte and the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan, on Wednesday said such campaign violation “exposes the true nature of the administration and the kind of governance behind the slogan daang matuwid [straight path].”
“Daang matuwid is but a platform of deceit that has been conditioning the minds of Filipinos that this administration has been clean and efficient, when in reality it is corrupt and worse than the past administrations it claims to admonish,” Alvarez added in a statement.
“It is not only a sham, at most it is shameless and loathsome,” she said.
Last week, a photo circulated online showed a black Toyota Hilux (SDK 417) loaded with the campaign materials bearing the word Roxas under the administration slogan daang matuwid.
Alvarez said the administration is “obviously at the height of desperation” as its candidates continue to lag behind in surveys.
“This is proof of what desperation is. This administration is willing to do everything to the extent of devouring our national resources just so it can push its cards on the table,” she added.
