PARA sa kampo ni presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., mas nais nitong gawing direkta ang pakikipag-usap sa publiko o pagpapahayag ng kanyang mga plano sakaling palarin sa May 2022 elections.
Tugon ng tagapagsalita ni Marcos na si Atty. Vic Rodriguez, “The reason why Bongbong Marcos decided not to join the Jessica Soho show is founded on our belief that the hostess of said popular talk show is biased against the Marcoses.”
Naniniwala ang kampo ni Marcos na iikot lamang sa mga negatibong paksa ang mga tanong ni Soho.
Ayon kay Rodriguez, ang anomang forum ay dapat nakatutok kung paano reresolbahin ng aspiring presidents ang mga problema sa bansa, lalo na ang pagbangon sa COVID-19 pandemic.
Importante aniyang maipakita ng presidential candidates ang kanilang mga plano at programa para sa bansa.
“We believe, though, that this 2022 elections could be the most important elections in our lifetime where candidates like presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos should be expected to present what his programs and plans are for the country to move forward with his economic plans, vision on education and digital infrastructure, employment creation, ensuring food security through a robust agriculture, how to bring the cost of power more affordable and all the way to our national sovereignty.
These and other equally important aspects of an aspirant’s preparedness to lead, ability to govern and capability to be president cannot be tested by his mere appearance on a show that has been perceived by us and our supporters as having previously displayed a preconceived judgement against the Marcoses.
Presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos’ duty is to the Filipino people and not to a particular tv show or program host. We will continue with our way of communicating direct to the people in so many equally significant shows, platforms and forums where all the attendees are allowed to present their visions, plans and platforms freely, unfiltered and unhindered by any biases,” bahagi ng pahayag ni Rodriguez.
