Statement of Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye Re: Real Issue
Manila (13 April) -- We believe that it is the economy that will determine the results of the forthcoming elections, considering the tide of optimism and hope for the future that is building up among the people and the communities.
The economy is the overriding substantive element in this campaign, not the hype, the negatives or the noise.
We are confident that on this basis, combined with the wellspring of support from the local leaders and benefited communities, the people will vote for unity, more investments and jobs and the continuity of social payback and reforms. (OPS) [top]
