With Ferdinand Bongbong Marcos Jr. breaching the 31million mark, breaking history by garnering about 57% of votes cast in a ten-cornered fight, the undisputable mandate is for him to become the 17th president of the Philippines.

As to why he was elected as the first to gather more than the majority among post-Edsa presidents, Senator Christopher Bong Go offered some explanations.

“Sino ba yung nakatulong sa mga mahihirap, nakatulong sa mga kababayan talaga natin sa pag-unlad ng ating bansa, especially ngayon na patawid tayo sa krisis na ating kinakaharap dahil sa pandemya,” asked Go.

 The senator explained that the people can no longer be fooled by traditional politicians. They can see through motives behind relief distribution examining track records on how long personalities have been helping the poor, in and outside public life.

“Sino ba ‘yung makakapagpatuloy… Nakita ninyo naman ngayon maganda ‘yung takbo ng ating Covid response. Dahil iyan sa pamumuno ng ating mahal na Pangulong (Rodrigo) Duterte. Importante ngayon papaano maipagpapatuloy ‘yon at makabalik na tayo sa normal nating pamumuhay sana. Iyon naman po ang pareparehong inaasam natin dito,” he added.

From past achievements, the people sought who is in the best position to provide continuity of programs, best practices and real good governance that promises a better life.

“At yung mga magagandang programa naman tulad ng Build Build Build, tulong sa mga mahihirap, at pati na rin ang Malasakit program… ipagpapatuloy naman yan ng bagong pangulo.  Iyon lang naman ang inaasam namin ni Pangulong Duterte, ipagpatuloy ninyo ‘yung magagandang programa to make life safer and more comfortable para sa mga Pilipino,” he reiterated.

With President Duterte’s term coming to an end, Go describes how he sees his role under a Marcos presidency, “As a lawmaker, I will continue the efforts of the current administration in providing a safer and more comfortable life for all.”

“Ako naman po bilang inyong senador, susuportahan ko ‘yung magagandang programa na makakatulong sa mga mahihirap – tulad ng mga nawalan ng trabaho, ‘yung apektado talaga sa pandemyang ito…. Iyon po naman alam kong uunahin ng incoming Bongbong-Sara administration,” the senator said.

He said he will simply remain proactive and supportive of how the executive branch can best perform its delivery of services to the public.
