As the campaign period for this year’s election ended Saturday, administration bet Mar Roxas expressed extreme confidence that the Filipino people would vote for him and the Daang Matuwid slate, adding that Filipinos would rather choose democracy over dictatorship.

He said that the threats to democracy is real, brought about by the pre-election survey popularity of his fiercest rival Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Bongbong Marcos, the son and namesake of former president Ferdinand Marcos.

“’Yung mga ordinaryong mamamayan, ngayon naninindigan na. Hindi na sila silent. Nagpaparating na sila ng tinig, ng kanilang pananaw na hindi nila gusto ang bastos. Hindi nila gusto yung komunismo. Hindi nila gusto yung dikataturya. Yung gusto nila yung tapat, malinis, hayag na pamamahala,” he said as he highlighted the stark difference between him and Duterte.

“Matingkad na matingkad ang pagkakaiba ni Mayor Duterte at sa akin. Mayor Duterte, diktaturya. Tayo naman po, pwersa ng demokrasya, pwersa ng kalayaan. Pwersa ng individual responsibility at pwersa ng individual empowerment. Empowerment ng bawat mamamayang Pilipino. ‘Yan po ang dalawang pwersa na maglalaban sa Lunes,” Roxas said.

He also reminded the people that the upcoming elections should not revolve around personality politics but the platform and plan of the presidential and vice presidential candidates.

“Pinaglalaban natin dito ang mga pangarap ng isang daang milyong Pilipino na araw-araw nagtatrabaho, araw-araw nagsasakripisyo, araw-araw naghihirap para hindi madaanan ng kanilang mga anak ang mga kahirapan na napagdadaanan nila sa kasalukuyan. ‘Yan po ang pinakapunto nitong halalang ito ay ‘yan din po ang ating ipinaglalaban,” he said.

“Ipanalo na natin itong laban na ito. Samahan n’yo po kami ni Leni Robredo sa ika-9 ng Mayo at panalo ang Pilipino,” Roxas said. (PNA report by Cielito M. Reganit)
