Isko Moreno Says He’s ‘David’ In Political Arena Full Of ‘Goliaths’

In the 2022 elections, history will repeat, Isko Moreno said

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno likened himself to Biblical character David who fought against Goliath, and for him, his political opponents in the 2022 elections are the giants.

Mayor Isko, popularly known as Yorme, is the only local official running for president and the second youngest among the presidential aspirants this year. However, these factors did not hinder him from pursuing the highest position in the Philippine government.

Moreno does not mind being perceived as the underdog in the political arena. Based on the report from Inquirer, during an interview that was held after the inauguration and turnover of units of Tondominium 1 in Vitas, Tondo, Mayor Isko Moreno likened his journey in politics to what happened to the fight of David against Goliath.

“The oldest history is in the Bible. Ang sinabi ‘yung mga matatangkad, matatayog, mga kilala, malalakas tinalo ni David na galing sa ordinaryong pamilya. So, sa akin history repeats itself.  May kasabihan rin na ganon. So, may awa ang Diyos,” the actor-turned-politician said.

Just like David, Moreno is also optimistic that he will win against the giants in the political arena. “‘Yung mga kalaban natin mga higante pero sinabi rin sa Bibliya na si Goliath tinalo ni David. Ibig sabihin sa Diyos walang imposible and today is a testimony…” he said adding what his administration has accomplished.

He also said that determination and perseverance are important in reaching one’s goal in life, just like what he did and continue to do. “So, today nangyari, natupad, naganap, tunay, at least ‘yung mga kababayan natin na nasabihan ko ng araw nung kampanya at least nasingil nila ako at ngayon ay may resibo na sila, awa ng Diyos,” the presidential candidate under Aksyon Demokratiko said.

Meanwhile, Isko Moreno, together with national candidates of their party kicked off their campaign this Tuesday through a mass at Sto. Nino Parish Church in Tondo. Then, they held a caravan around the city of Manila.
