Presidential Bet Manny Pacquiao Warns Public to Be Victimized by Vote-Buying
2022 poll presidential candidate Senator Manny Pacquiao has warned the public against vote-buying that will put their future at risk.
Those who sell their votes in the upcoming 2022 election would supposedly suffer for six years at the hands of unfit hands, according to the boxer-turned-politician. He went on to say that he believes voters will make the correct decision in the poll.
” ‘Yang boto ninyo, puwede ‘yang bilhin ng P1,000, P2,000, pero ang kapalit niyan is 6 na taon pagsasakripisyo, 6 na taon ng paghihirap,” the presidential candidate said.
“Ano bang kinabukasan mo sa loob ng 6 na taon? ‘Yun ‘yun. Bawat boto mo mahalaga. ‘Wag ninyong ibenta ‘yung boto ninyo. Pagdating sa pamumuno dito sa bansa natin, ‘wag na ‘wag niyo ibenta ‘yang boto ninyo,” he added.
Pacquiao also encourages Filipinos to make prudent decisions, claiming that Filipinos are intelligent. He also reminded them that the outcome of the next six years is determined by every Filipino’s vote.
Meanwhile, Pacquiao stated that he will strive to modify the election substitution regulation because it has been exploited. The substitution, according to Pacquiao, will only be authorized if the candidate dies, goes insane, or is unable to continue their campaign.
“Siguro papalitan natin, specify natin mabuti doon. May substitution pa rin, pero doon lang sa kung namatay ‘yung nag-file, or nasiraan ng ulo, hindi na makapagtuloy ng kaniyang kampanya, ‘yun lang. O kaya nagkasakit nang malubha. ‘Yun lang siguro ang puwedeng i-substitute,” Pacquiao said.
“Wala na ‘yung withdrawal tapos papalitan, kasi na-abuse nila eh. Niloloko ‘yung taong bayan eh,” he added.
Pacquiao went to Benguet and Pangasinan on Tuesday, where he met with local leaders. Cash, groceries, rice, t-shirts, and baller bands were among the goods he distributed.
