According to Manila Mayor Isko Moreno who is one of the 10 presidential candidates for the upcoming poll, he does not care if a certain area is a bailiwick of another presidential candidate. He stressed that he will visit places as long as there are Filipinos.
Mayor Isko is the standard-bearer of Partido Aksyon Demokratiko. According to him, if he wins president in the upcoming poll, he will continue the “Build Build Build” program of the current administration. He also vowed to take care of the welfare of the Filipino farmers, to exert all efforts to cut the electricity and fuel rates in the country and to boost the tourism sector.
Mayor Isko Moreno has already visited several cities and provinces after the campaign period has officially started last February 8. Recently, he campaigned in Tarlac. He was joined by Tarlac Governor Susan Yap at the event.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, during the said campaign event, Tarlac Governor Susan Yap introduced Mayor Isko Moreno as the ‘next president”. Following the said statement on stage, she made a clarification.
Yap who belongs to NPC clarified that she is still not endorsing a presidential bet as NPC has yet to decide about the candidates that the party will support. She clarified that calling Mayor Isko as “next president” was not a categorical statement and stressed that they will welcome all candidates who will be visiting their province to campaign. The Manila Mayor is the first presidential candidate to visit Tarlac amid the campaign period.
