Newly proclaimed senators from different political parties on Saturday vowed to support the administration of winning presidential bet Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, and called for unity among their ranks days after the country’s first nationwide automated polls.
Senator-elect Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., who ran under the administration party Lakas-Kampi-CMD, said winning candidates should go beyond political lines and rally behind Aquino.
“Siya ang hinalal ng sambayanan. Siya ang pinagkatiwalaan. Mapa-oposisyon, mapa-administrasyon, dapat suportahan sya. Ang nakataya rito ang kinabukasan ng ating sambayanan (He’s the one elected by the people. He’s the one they put their trust on. Whether you’re with the opposition or administration, you should support him. Our nation’s future hinges on this),” he said.
