Grace Poe Announces Presidential Bid

Grace Poe Announces Presidential Bid

| On 17, Sep 2015

Newbie senator Grace Poe-Llamanzares says she is a true Filipino and wanted to serve the nation.

In a jam-packed announcement on Wednesday evening at the University of the Philippines (UP) – Diliman, Poe-Llamanzares said she wanted to continue what her father, Fernando Poe Jr., started.

“Ako po si Grace Poe. Pilipino. Anal, asawa at ina, at sa tulong ng Mahal na Diyos ay inaalay ko sa inyong lahat ang aking sarili sa mas mataas na paninilbihan bilang inyong pangulo,” said Poe.

“Sana po ay samahan ninyo ako sa pagpapanday ng maganda at makabuluhang hinaharap ng ating inang bayang Pilipinas,” Poe added.

As she deliver her speech, Poe was lauded by her supporters, which also include her mother, Susan Roces and her family. Several celebrities were also present.

Poe stressed that honesty is better than intelligence and again, tagging her late father.

“Noong ako po’y unang kumatok sa inyong mga puso, ang sabi ko gusto kong ipagpatuloy ang mga simulain ni FPJ. Simple lang ang prisipyo ng aking ama na siya ring naging dahilan ng kanyang pagtakbo,” said Poe.

“Sinabi niya sa bulwagang ito mahigit 11 taong nakalipas: Importante sa isang leader ang katalinuhan pero mas importante na tapat na pusong manilbihan upang tulungan ang mahihirap, labanan ang pang-aabuso, at pumanday ng isang lipunang masagana at makatarungan,” Poe added.

She then said that she is offering herself to the Filipinos.

“Kayong lahat ang pinaghuhugutan ko ng inspirasyon. Kayo ang nagbibigay sa akin ng lakas na ialay ang aking sarili sa mas mataas na paninilbihan sa bayan,” she added.

Poe also laid her plans for different departments like education, health, and even fighting for senior citizens, LGBT and even the West Philippine Sea.
