BBM: A vote for us is a vote for unified, more progressive PH

MANILA — Presidential frontrunner Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. on Thursday urged all voters throughout the country to exercise their rights and vote on May 9.

BBM made the call during the second miting de avance of UniTeam held in Tagum, Davao del Norte.

In his speech, Marcos, who is number 7 on the Comelec official ballot, said a vote for him and his running mate Mayor Inday Sara Duterte, is a vote for a unified and more progressive Philippines which suffered and still recovering from economic crisis due to the pandemic.

“Sa darating na Lunes, ang pagboto niyo sa tambalang Marcos-Duterte, ang pagboto niyo sa lahat ng senador ng UniTeam, ay ang tinig ng ating mga kababayan, ng madlang Pilipino, na kayo ay bumoboto para sa kinabukasan, kayo ay bumoboto para sa bawat mamamayang Pilipino at kayo ay bumoboto para sa pagkakaisa,” he said.

“Ang boto niyo para kay Marcos at para kay Duterte at sa UniTeam ay ang boto para sa pagmamahal sa Pilipinas kaya napakahalaga po ng inyong boto, napakahalaga na kayo’y pumunta sa mga presinto at sama-sama tayong bumoto sa darating na halalan,” he added.

Marcos said it is one’s responsibility to vote in order to select the one they think can help and serve the country.

The Partido Federal ng Pilipinas standard-bearer, who is bringing the message of unity since he announced his intent to run, said if they will be elected, the whole UniTeam will work hard to continue the unity movement which was formed by the people during the campaign.

“Kapag tayo ay nagtagumpay at maipagpatuloy ang inyong nasimulan na kilusan ng pagkakaisa bago pa ang halalan, ang boto niyo ay boto ninyo para ipagpatuloy ang kilusan ng pagkakaisa para sa mamayang Pilipino (at) para sa minamahal na Pilipinas,” he said.

“Ganoon po ang kahulugan ng inyong boto dito sa halalan na ito at kung kayo po ay napupusuan ninyo ang UniTeam, ang tambalang Marcos- Duterte, kami ay nangangakong gagawin namin sa aming kakayahan, sa buong sipag na walang pagod at patuloy na pagtatrabaho para sa ating bansa upang sama-sama tayong babangon muli,” he added.

UniTeam supporters again showed their strength as thousands went to the City Hall Grounds despite heavy downpour before the start of the event to personally see Marcos and Duterte as they wrapped up their 90-day campaign with three miting de avance in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, which started in Guimbal, Iloilo last May 3.

Marcos remained grateful for the people’s support which he saw from the day one of the campaigns.

“Naramdaman po namin ang suporta ninyo kung saan kami nagpapasalamat sa taumbayan sa napakainit na suporta. Ngayon lang tayo nakakita ng mahigit kumulang 60% ng tao ng Pilipinas ay nasa atin na at sumasama satin at nakikipagsanib pwersa sa atin,” he said.

“Kaya dito sa kampanyang ito ay napuna ko na ang natanggap namin ay hindi lang suporta ninyo ngunit ang inyong pagunawa na ang pagsuporta niyo samin sa UniTeam ay hindi lang suporta para sa mga kandidato kung hindi suporta para sa pagkakaisa at pagpapabuti ng buhay ng bawat Pilipino,” he said.

Joining them in the event were Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, Atty. Larry Gadon, Harry Roque, Gibo Teodoro, Robin Padilla, Jinggoy Estrada, Mark Villar and Migz Zubiri.

Local officials from different parts of Mindanao also joined in the UniTeam’s miting de avance.

Prior to the event, Marcos had a short meeting with Hugpong ng Pagbabago candidates in the province led by vice governor Rey Uy.

Also, Sagip Partylist representative Dante Marcoleta was present at the rally.

BBM and Sara together with their senatorial bets, will end their scheduled three-leg miting de avance on May 7 in Parañaque City. (ai/mtvn)
