Don’t vote for rich candidates who lack empathy –Pres. Duterte

Vote for those candidates who are sincere, hardworking, and a solid good track record.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte gave these reminders to the crowd when he was the guest speaker in the PDP-Laban campaign rally in Abra early this week.

The President is reminding the electorate way ahead of the May mid-term elections and has made a point not to vote for those wealthy candidates who lack empathy for those who have less in life.

“Mamili kayo ng presidente, congressman, huwag kayong pumili ‘yang mga mayaman. They cannot fathom. Sa Binisaya, di nila makab-ot. Sa Tagalog, hindi nila makuha sa ilalim ‘yung sentimiyento ng tao [When you choose a president, congressman, don’t choose the rich ones. They cannot fathom. In Tagalog, they cannot get the deep sentiment of the people],” Duterte said.

The President warns that those rich candidates might only take advantage of the people.

“Pagka ‘yang mga milyonaryo na dati may mga korporasyon, mga plantation, gagamitin lang kayo niyan. Maghanap kayo ng mga tao na sinsero. ‘Yun nagtrabaho na’t may maipakita na [Those millionaires with companies, plantation, they will just use you. Look for the people who are sincere, who have worked hard with proven track record],” he added.
