MAKATI CITY, METRO MANILA — More youth groups are now throwing support to the senatorial bid of erstwhile Philippine National Police (PNP) retired general Guillermo Eleazar as the country’s former Top Cop hosted officers of The Coalition of the Youth for Development (TCYD), who made a surprise visit on the Partido Reporma candidate at his campaign headquarters in Barangay San Antonio in Makati City.

TCYD founding president Jerome Paolo Bernardo Gonzales paid a courtesy call on Eleazar with his fellow youth leaders to express their strong support to the retired police general because of his advocacies that help empower the youth sector.

Eleazar was elated with the unexpected show of support from the millennials who he deem carry the legacy of the country’s future: “Nakakatuwa na itong ating mga kabataan ay naglaan ng oras para ako ay bisitahin. Malapit sa puso ko ang mga kabataan dahil noong ako ay nasa serbisyo pa sa PNP, maraming lumapit sa akin para humingi ng tulong na mga magulang na na-kidnap ang anak o nalulong sa masamang bisyo at gusto nilang patinuin.”

“Kaya para makatanggap ng suporta sa ating mga kabataan na Gen Z at millennials ay talagang nakakataba ng puso. Life is really a cycle dahil kung noon ay natulungan natin sagipin ang mga kabataan, ngayon ay mga kabataan naman ang tumutulong sa ating kandidatura dahil naniniwala sila sa aking kakayahan na magsilbi sa bayan. Sabi nga nila eh Gen Z supports Gen. E – General Eleazar,” the ‘senatoriable’ added.

Eleazar committed to Gonzales and his group that he will include in his legislative agenda measures that would support future programs of the TCYD that would help them hone their skills so they can contribute to nation-building.

“Gaya ng lagi kong sinasabi, ang mga kabataan na naninidigan para sa tama ang tunay na pag-asa ng bayan. Ipaglalaban natin ang mga kabataan sa Senado dahil ang laban nila ay laban ko rin,” he stressed. (ai/mtvn)
