Statement of Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye Re: Polls
Manila (4 April) -- The people themselves will guard the ballot and fight fraud to protect their votes, and they can be assured of the support of non-partisan law enforcement agencies.
This will be a clean and peaceful election despite the tainting and taunting of the opposition.
We stand beside the people in calling for a high level campaign based on the issues of economic security and political stability, not a low level debate on cheating, machinations or personal attacks.
We come to the contest armed with a superior platform, reaching out for unity and with a prime focus to serve the poor.
We urge the opposition to lift up the level of debate and join us in lifting up the lives of the people. (OPS) [top]
