Sen. Grace Poe has called on the electorate to choose a leader who is stable, has a word of
honor and will not use violence.
Poe on Thursday said a good leader should know how to respect and listen to the people.
“Many of us have children and what kind of a Philippines do we want our children to have?” she asked. “I don’t believe that violence is the solution to the problems of the country. Let us choose a leader who could take us out of poverty but bullet is not the answer to our problems.”
The senator showed her tough side after being branded a “weakling” by Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
“Baka hindi niya ako kilala [He does not know me well],” she quipped, as she dismissed the general sentiment that she is the only person standing in the way of a Duterte administration.
“Maybe we’re standing in front of each other. Sa tingin ko hindi naman siguro patas, makatarungan sabihin na [In my view it is not fair and just to say that] I am standing in his way. He could also be standing in my way,” Poe told reporters.
The senator, however, said that stopping Duterte has never been her motive and that she is offering herself to the people as their next leader and it is up to them to choose.
