TARLAC — Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan said Wednesday that the kind of governance he and presidential candidate Leni Robredo offers is anchored on lifting every Filipino family from poverty.
At the launch of Team Robredo-Pangilinan’s (TROPA’s) headquarters here today, Pangilinan said that one of the reasons why he accepted the challenge to run for vice president is the current sorry situation of the Filipino people.
“Hindi tayo magiging progresibong bansa habang mas marami ang naghihikahos at naghihirap,” Pangilinan lamented.
“Kinakailangang buhatin at angatin lahat. At iyon ang isa sa magiging hallmark ng Robredo-Pangilinan tandem at administration,” he added.
For Pangilinan, the decision to be Robredo’s running-mate was not a difficult one to make as both of them almost have the same advocacy as lawyers and public servants. (ai/mtvn)
