President Benigno Aquino III appealed to Filipino voters to be critical in choosing the country’s next leaders in 2013.
“2013 is a critical chapter in our crusade for long-term development and clean governance. In this new year, we need to have stronger unity. I hope that the Filipino public will be more critical in installing its leaders,”
Aquino said the sustainability of his reforms will depend on who will be elected.
“These leaders will be the ones to answer our call to pursue the nobility of public service; these leaders will be the ones who will push through with the reforms we started,”
He added that it is important for people to consider what direction they would like the country to go to – to move forward or go back to the time when corruption blocked progress.
