Statement of Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye Re: Summit for Clean Elections
Quezon City (31 January) -- In fairness, the proposed summit is yet to convene, so let us give it a chance.
The more important issue today is not the unity of political coalitions but the unity of the people behind clean and peaceful elections.
Preparations are underway and we vow to work towards a comprehensive approach to protect the people's vote and shield the process from intimidation and fraud.
We look forward to a strong and successful covenant among all stakeholders that will uphold Philippine democracy and the rule of law. (OPS) [top]
