President Aquino told the Bicolano voters of CamSur District 2 that the bright future of their province and the whole country are in their hands on May 13. He added that success and development will continue only if the right leaders will be the partners of his administration. In local dialect, the President stated, “Dai kayang negaran: Sa lambang Pilipino man guiraray naghahali ang kusog kan pagbabago. Ipagdagos ta an napunan tang laban. Tara na asin isulong ta ang matanos na dalan paduman sa dakulang kauswagan digdi sa Camarines Sur asin sa bilog na nasyon.”
