DUTERTE CAMP STATEMENT
The recent Pulse Asia survey results give us more encouragement to work harder on the ground, motivated by the trust of the people on Rodrigo Duterte’s political agenda of genuine change for the Filipino people and the country.
On the ground, we are heartened and inspired by the positive and overwhelming responses from the people since we hit the campaign trail.
The survey results do not reflect what we believe are the real sentiments of the Filipinos.
We have seen our numbers steadily advancing overall.
But we have also seen where we are weak and need to catch up, as well as recognize where we are making great headways.
The elections are still a good two months away and we have plenty of time to move up.
We will remain vigilant and be on the lookout and will continue to work very hard for the victory of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in the May 2016 presidential elections.
