PGMA refuses to be distracted by political noise prematurely generated by 2010 polls

Manila (21 November) -- In the midst of the political noise generated by the premature campaigning for the 2010 presidential elections, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo assured the people today that she would remain focused on her job of steering the country towards economic stability.

"I am not affected by the noise at all. I am focused on my job and will continue to do my job," the President said when she was interviewed Thursday (Nov. 20) by DXOC-Ozamis City at the Gango airport here.

When asked how she manages to remain focused on her job, the President replied: "discipline."

Earlier on Wednesday (Nov. 19), in her keynote address at the 18th League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) General Assembly at the Manila Hotel, the President thanked the local executives for staying focused on their jobs of delivering basic services to the people, and for not being affected by the noise prematurely generated by the 2010 elections.

"Thank you for realizing that effective governance is not a popularity contest. And thank you for understanding that the people deserve from their leaders to deliver, and because you stood and delivered," she said. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
