A President should have these qualities, according to Hidilyn Diaz
Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz shared the qualities of the President who she wants to vote in the 2022 elections.
Indeed, Hidilyn lifted the spirit of many Filipinos who are feeling down amid the crisis brought by the pandemic. She became a beacon of hope for many as she surpassed all the trials she went through and became victorious at the end.
She is one of the most talked-about personalities these days and indeed her opinion matters. In a recent Instagram post of Kapuso broadcast journalist Arnold Clavio, he shared this short video of Hidilyn Diaz saying the qualities that she is looking for in the next leader of the country.
“Ang iboboto ko, yung pinuno na may pusong winner, hindi pusong talunan; ‘yung maka-Diyos at makatao, hindi makasarili; ‘yung magbibigay ng kalinga, hindi takot. Kayo rin, di ba?” the Pinay weightlifter said.
With this, Clavio mentioned in the caption of his post the past struggles that Hidilyn had to go through when her name was included in the “Oust Duterte” matrix. During a recent virtual courtesy call, President Rodrigo Duterte said that the Pinay weightlifter should “let bygones be bygones”.
Hidilyn said that she should “forgive everyone” but stressed that what she went through pushed her to reach her dream and the victory that she deserves.
In with this, Clavio said, “May kasabihan tayong mga Pilipino na nakamulatan na natin, ‘madaling magpatawad pero mahirap ang makalimot.’”
Then, the broadcast journalist said that following the historic win of Hidilyn Diaz, she became an important voice. “At ngayong nalalapit na ang eleksyon malaki ang magiging impluwensiya ni Diaz sa magiging desisyon ng mga botante sa pagpili ng susunod na pangulo,” he said.
