Manila Mayor Isko Moreno: “Ang priority ko makatapos sila (kids) ng pag-aaral or gawin nila ’yung kanilang talagang gusto.”
ISKO MORENO — On Friday, the Aksyon Demokratiko presidential candidate said that his children were only allowed to join political activities during their free time.
Mayor Isko’s children seemed delighted to take part in their father’s campaign, but their father said that they’re only allowed to join political activities during their free time.
Three of Mayor Isko’s five children have been actively campaigning for him, either by going on house-to-house campaigns, serving as his representative in sorties, or performing in concert rallies.
In a chance interview, Mayor Isko told reporters that his children’s priority is to finish their studies or pursue their passions, adding that they’re not required to do anything when it comes to the campaign.
“I don’t require them … Ang priority ko makatapos sila ng pag-aaral or gawin nila ’yung kanilang talagang gusto,” Mayor Isko told reporters. “Hindi sila required sa pamilya namin pagdating sa kampanya. Any help will do.“
Mayor Isko earlier said that his children were barred from running for a public position while he was still in government.
Meanwhile, Domagoso’s wife Diana Lynn said in an earlier interview on ABS-CBN News Digital that not forcing their kids to do several things has always been their parenting style.
“I believe na if you want a job to be done properly, kailangan gustuhin mo yun. So kung mapipilitan lang sila, they cannot perform well,” she said. “Yung makita ko lang sila na nasa maayos na lugar, nasa maayos na kondisyon, malaking bagay na yun. Malaking tulong na yun sa akin bilang nanay at bilang tatay para kay Isko.“
