- Isko Moreno promised to clean the city of Manila
- He said that his priority as the new mayor is the trash
- Moreno also said that he is willing to learn from Erap Estrada and Alfredo Lim
Newly-proclaimed Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno vowed to clean the city of Manila once he assumed the post. KAMI learned that Moreno would “move heaven and earth” to make this possible.
"I'll move heaven and earth to clean up the city. Dugyot kami. Papaliguan ko lang naman," he said in ANC's Headstart on Thursday.
Moreno said that his priority as the new mayor of Manila is the garbage collection. He said that he would be initiating a bid for a new trash contractor for Manila.
He also mentioned that he made a promise to the residents of Manila that he will bring back the designated time and date for garbage collection.
“Ang pangako ko kasi sa taumbayan, ibabalik ko ‘yung takdang oras, takdang araw nung koleksyon,” Moreno said.
“Alam mo naman, basurero ako noong araw, ‘yung pagkain sa basura program, that thing,” he added, as part of his campaign promise.
In a report by the ABS-CBN News, Moreno said that he is willing to reach out to Erap Estrada and Alfredo Lim to learn more and gain ideas as the new head of the city.
"Kailangan ko silang dalawa if they're willing. Marami rin akong pwedeng matutunan sa kanila... If they have ideas, why not? There is no monopoly of knowledge," Moreno said.
As previously reported by KAMI, Moreno has spoken up about his victory against Estrada. The incumbent mayor had a hard time accepting his defeat at first.
Actor-turned-politician Isko Moreno Domagoso used to be an ally of Estrada. He also served as the vice mayor of Manila City.
