Poe: I’m an alternative to real, fair changes

In the last stretch of the campaign trail, presidential aspirant Senator Grace Poe has promised to bring in “real and just” changes in the country, but said her pro-people reforms will only be wasted without the support of the electorate who is the final judge on the May 9 polls.

Considering the voting public as the final judge during the Election Day, the independent presidential bet expressed hope that she would be given the chance to “sincerely and efficiently” serve the nation.

Poe, who braved strings of disqualification cases said she drew her strength from people whom she met during the campaign.

“Natutunan ko na mas malakas pala talaga ang loob ko, mas may tapang rin at kahit na nabubugbog, kaya ko pala talaga bumangon. At sa tingin ko hindi lang dahil sa aking sarili, kung hindi dahil sa mga nais kong gawin para sa ating mga kababayan,” Poe told reporters, shortly after her breakfast meeting with factory workers on Sunday in Barangay Jesus de la Peña, Marikina City.

“‘Yon talaga ang layunin ko kung bakit ako tumakbo – ialay ang aking sarili. Baka sakaling isang alternatibo na magkaroon ng tunay na pagbabago at makatarungang pagbabago,” she said.

The daughter of late actor Fernando Poe Jr. and actress Susan Roces said she has done everything to convince the people to support her Galing at Puso campaign.

“Sa tingin ko wala ka namang magagawa para makasiguro ka, gagawin mo lang ‘yung makakaya mo. Nalibot ko ang maraming lugar sa Pilipinas at nakita ko talaga ang hinanaing ng ating mga kababayan na sana hindi naman matapos lamang dito sa kampanya, na ito ang ating pagkakataon na makatulong sa mas malawak na paraan,” she said.

In a political rally in Mandaluyong City on Sunday, Poe also assured the people that she would not steal from the government coffers.

“Basta ito ang maipapangako ko: Ako ay pinalaki ng aking mga magulang na maging magalang at matulungin, lalong-lalo na sa mahihirap at tunay na nangangailangan. Hindi ko kayo nanakawan,” she said.

“Hangga’t kaya ko, hindi ako susuko katulad ng ipinakita ko itong mga nakaraang buwan. Gagawin natin ang lahat para ang ating bansa ay pwede nating ikarangal sa ibang bansa at hindi na natin sasabihin na mas magaling ang ibang bansa sa Asya,” Poe said.
