Teen King Daniel Padilla calls all voters this May 9, especially those who have voiced out their opinions with regard to their chosen candidates, to know and understand what they are talking about.
Daniel sets himself as an example. He said he is choosing Mar Roxas because of the track record.
“Ako, obviously, kami ay kay Kuya Mar dahil napakaganda ng track record (Obviously, we are for Kuya Mar because his track record is outstanding),” Daniel said.
Daniel only has high praises for his candidate, Roxas. He said voters should also know what their candidate has done, claiming that he knows everything his candidate Roxas has achieved.
The actor also compared Roxas to that of a martyr.
“Actually, tingin ko nga kay Kuya Mar, parang martir (I look at Kuya Mar like a martyr). Kasi, parang lahat yata ng di magawa ng gobyerno, si Kuya Mar ang gumagawa, tapos sa huli, siya rin ang masisisi, di ba (Because everything that the government did not do, he did; at the end of it all, he also got the blame, right)? At least, may ginagawa yung tao at may ginagawa talaga at nagagawa niya (At least, he did something and is doing something). “Kesa dun sa mga pulitikong puro salita and wala na sa lugar ang sinasabi maging open-minded ho tayo (Compared to those politicians who are just saying a lot but not doing anything),” Daniel voiced out.
The actor has a message for the voting public.
“Siguro sa lahat ng mga boboto ngayon, lahat tayo may opinyon, siyempre hindi pare-pareho kung paano tayo mag-isip, pero bago tayo mag-act o sabihin, make sure natin na alam natin yung sinasabi natin (To those who will be voting this elections, I know we have our own opinions and we have different views; However, before we say or do something, make sure we know what we are talking about),” Daniel said.
“Huwag din tayong masyadong matapang (Let us not be to brave). Make sure alam din natin at kaya nating i-back up yung sinasabi natin (Let us make sure we know how to back up everything we say). Hindi naman tayo puwedeng salita nang salita and di mo naman alam ang nangyayari sa eleksyon (We cannot just talk and talk without knowing what’s going to happen during the election day). Marami kasing nagmamagaling sa eleksyon, hindi naman botante, di ba (There are those who are trying to be smart, but are not voting after all, right)? So, shut up ka, hindi ka naman botante (So for you, just shut up),” Daniel added.
The teen actor also said that all voters should be open-minded.
“Sa lahat ng mga bumoboto, ang gusto ko lang sabihin, maging open-minded sa mga nangyayari at alamin ang nangyayari ngayong eleksyon dahil napakalapit na. Ilang araw na lang (For all the voters, please be open-minded and know what is going on especially that there are a few days left before the election day.) So, kilalanin yung susuportahan natin (Know who you are voting for). Kung sino naman [ang iboboto], hindi pa huli ang lahat para magbago ang desisyon (It’s not too late to change our minds). Kung kanino man kayo, pero alamin natin ang nangyayari ngayon (Whoevver you are voting for, just please know what’s happening right now),” he continued.
Daniel said that the voting public is composed of people and not machines. The people have brains and hearts, and that we should also choose a president who is a person and not a machine.
Daniel also addressed questions regarding the candidates his relatives are supporting ,specifically Robin Padilla who is actively campaigning for DavaoCity Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
“Sabi ko, iba-iba nga ang opinyon ng bawat tao, so ang hirap din kasi (As I’ve said, each of us has different opinion). Pero ise-set aside mo yung pamilya sa pulitika, dahil mahirap (But you have to set aside your family when it comes to politics because it’s hard). “Pero dapat nasa lugar din kayo at irespeto ang bawat desisyon (However, you should respect the each other’s decision). Huwag kayong nagkakatapakan (There’s no need to step on other people),” Daniel concluded.
