HIGHLIGHT - Presidential contender Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago on Friday, April 29, appealed to voters to nominate contenders with moral integrity and not be gratified with word-of-mouth promises, assurances and public images.
Recoletos in Bacolod City.
If elected president, Santiago vows that her supervision of the nation will ultimately leave her successor with a country that is stout and greater than what she would inherit now.
Santiago acknowledged that the leadership and government have yet to achieve victory against crime and corruption due to its lack of political willpower to execute the necessary changes for the country’s positive transformation.
She has been pressing for approvals of anti-corruption bills and other ways to motivate and help the youth and minority fight corruption such as freedom of information, anti-political recommendation bills, improvement of public service deliveries, and the tracking of government spending and results, among other things.
