SENATOR Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. said the upcoming elections should not cause divisions and called on the people to unite after the elections this year.
Marcos had been going around Quezon City where he was warmly welcomed by ordinary people.
“Talking to the people, face to face with the commoners, vendors, teachers, drivers, farmers, students, the labor sector and the jobless and all the other ordinary citizens gives me confidence that I am accepted to be their Vice President. I am deeply humbled,” he said in a statement.
Marcos has been going around to rally the people to support national unity.
“Unity will make our country strong and stable. Let us not allow ourselves to remain divided by partisan politics after we have already installed new leaders in our government,” he said.
In his public consultations, Marcos stressed the need to eradicate illegal drugs, rid the bureaucracy of dishonest people, lower the prices of commodities, end poverty, and create jobs.
“We cannot achieve these goals unless we work as one. Isang bansa, isang diwa, isang gawa. This is the mantra that we have to follow by heart for the country to be progressive,” he said.
