President Aquino: Choosing the right leaders is the voters’ responsibility
 

President Benigno S. Aquino III on Thursday reiterated that putting the right leaders in place is a responsibility that ultimately lies with the electorate.

“Lahat tayo, pare-pareho ang boto natin. Lahat tayo ay mayroong responsibildad sa pupuntahan natin. Kayo ang gumawa ng pagbabagong ating pinapakinabangan ngayon, kayo ang pwedeng lalong magpalago nitong pagbabagong ito para maging permanente,” the President said in his speech before leaders and residents of Muntinlupa City.

He recalled that when he began serving his term as president back in 2010, no one thought that 7.7 million Filipinos would be brought out of poverty.

“Noong 2010, ang sabi ninyo sa akin, ‘Tigilin mo lang ang kalokohan, malaking bagay na ‘yan.’ Noong 2010, walang nag-isip sa atin, 7.7 million na kababayan natin naangat sa poverty line, na gagawin tayong investment grade, na mayroon tayong 4.6 million kabahayang kayang tulungan,” he said, referring to the 4.6 million households currently benefitting from the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).

The President noted that the country is just beginning to reap the benefits of the government’s reform program. (Full story: 04.29.16)
