“Kung sa palengke nga, ipinaglalaban natin na tama ang timbangan eh, (Even in markets, people would fight for correct weighing scales,” Roxas said, who was popularly known as “Mr. Palengke” in the 2004 senatorial race.
“Kung mga misis, isang guhit lang, 900 grams pero isang kilo dapat, malaking bagay na, (For our wives, even just a single line—a kilo instead of 900 grams—is already a big thing for them),” said Roxas.
The former Trade secretary who is running under the “Otso Diretso” opposition coalition, this May mid term elections.
He made this statement as he echoes the sentiments of his patymates in the opposition in rejecting the controversial statements made by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, is the campaign manager of “Hugpong ng Pagbabago” candidates- made an earlier statement wherein she insisted that the virtue of honesty should not be made an issue this election season as all candidates have a penchant for lying.

Roxas puts up the argument like “timbangan ng bayan” and “palengke situation” which he finds apt analogies that clearly answer the importance of honesty to the people or public.
“Para sa akin, importante yung honesty. Kaya nga may ‘Timbangan ng Bayan’ eh (For me, honesty is important. That’s why we have so-called public weighing scales),” he said.
