Claudio: GO ads a ‘little annoying’ for being ‘dishonest’
MANILA, Philippines (13 April) -- A “little annoying” was how a Palace official described the omnibus campaign advertisements of the Genuine Opposition highlighting the problems of the country.
Presidential political adviser Gabrielle Claudio said it was also completely dishonest for the opposition to give emphasis on the problems and disregard the progress that the government has been doing for the country.
“The ads of the opposition don't bother us. It's a little annoying because it's very far from the truth,” Claudio told reporters before midnight Wednesday.
“It misrepresents what's happening but we're not particularly bothered or insecure in the sense that it's very easy to refute,” he said.
Claudio was confident that the ads would soon boomerang on the opposition once the people realize that it did not really represent the true situation in the country.
“Hindi mawawala ang negative things that (are happening) in the country. That goes without saying,” he said.
“But to put emphasis on them and completely disregard the headway of the progress our country is making under the leadership of this administration and the President is dishonest,” the Palace official said.
Claudio said the administration's Team Unity ticket would also come out with an omnibus advertisement that would indirectly refute the opposition's claim in its ads.
But he quickly clarified that their ads had been thought of even before the GO came up with its own.
Unlike the opposition, Claudio said the theme of their campaign ads would focus on the positive developments that were happening in the country. (PIA) [top]
