Poisoned politics root of pessimism in RP - Bunye
MANILA (1 December) -- "Poisoned politics is the root of the ripple of pessimism in the country right now…"
This was the statement made by Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesman Ignacio Bunye in connection with Pulse Asia's lates report, saying one in every three Filipinos wants to move on to another country as some believes the Philippines is hopeless.
Despite this, Bunye made clear that the issue is already dented by the growing confidence in the economy and the brightening prospects for next year.
"The disgust of the people over the politics of personality, hatred and destabilization is evident, as they themselves witness how these pull down the economy and distract the momentum of our fight against poverty, the root of hopelessness," he said.
Meanwhile, the Secretary acknowledged the sacrifice of Filipinos seeking better opportunities abroad, for their families and the country, but pointed out that the present administration is not stopping to look for ways to keep them home by aiming at a strong economy generating well paying jobs.
