This was the call issued by presidential bet Senator Ping Lacson yesterday when he launched his weekly radio program over DYRD.
He said “huwag natin iboto ang mga magnanakaw sa gobyierno natin,” citing that these people are considered the biggest disaster in governance.
Sen. Lacson who has been consistent in his anti-graft expose’ at the Senate said voters should be watchful on candidates who spend much to buy their votes in the coming elections.
“These are the people who will steal funds from coffers to recoup their election expenditures,” he stressed.

Sen Lacson likewise said that part of his advocacy is to increase the funds allocated to the Local Government Units to finance projects approved by the Regional Development Council
