"We had a chance to elect brave, competent, independent-minded and compassionate people, who understood and were committed to the true meaning of 'public service', but we, as a nation, turned their offer down."


The 8 senatorial candidates of the opposition “"offered themselves up to serve the interests of the Filipino people - above all and with no reservations," said De Lima.
The detained senator said the loss was “painful”, and that the Filipino people should not give up.
"This fight is perhaps the most important fight of our entire history as a nation. We are fighting for our future, our children's future. We are fighting for our soul as a nation," De Lima said.


"There will be no playing the blame game. There will, nevertheless, be a lot of reflection, a heightened resolve and, above all, the opening up of avenues of communications," she added.
