Poe will replace Aquino Cabinet


PARTIDO Galing at Puso presidential candidate Senator Grace Poe on Thursday said that she sees no reason for her to keep the members of President B.S. Aquino 3rd’s cabinet if ever she is elected as president of the country in May.

Poe was responding to questions from reporters about her plans regarding her cabinet and if she intends to retain some members of the Aquino cabinet.

“Many will be replaced. I think almost all of the cabinet members will have to go,” Poe said.

She clarified that cabinet officials will not be replaced just because they are allied with the president but because she wants her cabinet to be composed of people who are honest, effective and capable individuals.

Poe also assured that an individual need not to be an ally for him or her to be part of her cabinet because what is important is for them to have the expertise, knowledge, as well as a genuine desire to serve the people.

“Even if you’re an ally or if you have campaigned against me, as long as you are honest, hardworking, and with no record of corruption we will hire you,” Poe added.

She said she will also take a tough stance against corrupt and abusive people and vowed to put an end to the so-called padrino system (patronage) in government.

Poe said that her government will observe a system of strong merit and good governance wherein both allies and critics of the administration will be treated fairly.

“People would not have to worry that their concerns will fall on deaf ears just because their leader is not allied with the administration,” she said in her speech during her visit to Samar province.

She said the top priorities of her “Gobyernong may Puso” will be free college education in state colleges and universities or a “study now, pay later” scheme in private schools; free lunches in public elementary schools; agricultural reforms; job creation; and quality, climate-resilient infrastructure.

Poe said that a woman’s toughness is what the country needs. Women, she pointed out, never give up and get the job done.

  5. “…woman’s toughness…” sounds sexist to me. “…get the job done.” What job, blow job? My hiney! You can promise the moon and the stars, Ms Llamanzares, but will not give you the qualification required to run this magnificent country of mine.
