Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas claims that the campaign pitch of the country’s most popular presidential candidate on social media, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is impossible to achieve. One of the primary pitch of the Davao City mayor is to solve crimes in just three to six months, which according to Mar Roxas is impossible to achieve.
According to Mar Roxas during one of his campaign sorties, Mayor Duterte is belittling the intelligence of voters by making his promise to curb crimes in just a short span of time. Mar Roxas probably didn’t realize according to some netizens that Mayor Duterte don’t have the idea that once Duterte is elected as president, he will implement what he achieved in Davao in a large scale approach.
Mar Roxas stated that “Itong 3 to 6 months na ito, pambobola ito eh. Lahat ng eksperto na nakakaalam sa krimen, nagsasabi na imposible ito,” Roxas said. The anointed candidate of Pres. Aquino also urged voters to think twice on whether Mayor Duterte is telling the truth or just says what the voters want to hear.
The former Interior secretary Mar Roxas said that Davao City, considered as Mayor Duterte’s bailiwick, is one of the cities with the highest number of index crimes although as chief of the LGU, Mar Roxas was even the one who named Davao City as one of the safest city in the Philippines.
“Mahigit dalawampung taon siyang nanungkulan bilang mayor ng Davao City. Ngayon, sa bilang ng murder, mataas ang Davao City, sa bilang ng rape, mataas ang Davao City, sa droga meron droga sa Davao City,” he said.
”So, papapano sasabihin na titigil lahat ito sa loob ng tatlo hanggang anim na buwan kung sa dalawampung taon sa Davao City, hindi ito nasugpo?”
Mar Roxas didn’t realize also that while serving as head of the DILG, he has all the power to order the police force in different parts of the country including his Cubao home and his bailiwick in Roxas city to curb all crimes but he failed to do so.
