VICE presidential candidate Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. advised first time voters to change the country for the better by choosing candidates based on their track record and performance.
Talking to youth voters at the Voters’ Education Forum at Tomas Claudio College in Morong, Rizal, Marcos said the youth have the immense power to make a difference.
“We are approaching an election and let us allow those who vote in the elections to make their own judgments as to who did the most for this country and who had the opportunity to do much for this country but who did not,” he later told reporters.
While Marcos did not name any candidate that possesses the best qualifications, he said he wanted to give young voters a guide in making the right judgment.
“I’m asking them to make that judgment as many of them are first time voters. It is a guide for them how to choose the people that they will vote for, how to choose the candidates that they feel will serve the country well,” he explained.
Marcos campaigned in Rizal province where political kingpins, led by the Ynares family, threw their support behind his vice presidential bid.
The senator thanked the people of Rizal for their overwhelming support to his Unity Caravan.
“It was so beautiful. There were a lot of people who went out to welcome me. They were not only saying hello but they were really expressing their support to which I am very thankful and humbled. I won’t disappoint them,” Marcos said.
