Lacson stands by his record and experience

Sen.  Ping Lacson: The most qualified, the most competent, the most experienced candidate.

Sen.  Ping Lacson: The most qualified, the most competent, the most experienced candidate.

Senator Panfilo “Ping” has once again proven he is truly the corruption-buster “Mr. Clean” he is touted to be. In recent articles, the presidential candidate known for his strong anti-corruption stance, was recently vindicated for previous crimes he was unjustly accused of during the Arroyo administration.

No less than former President Sen. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, in her recently launched memoir entitled “Deus Ex Machina,” admitted that the accusations against Sen Lacson were fake.   

“The information that was made public could not be substantiated,” GMA wrote in her memoir.  

Years later, Marquez recanted accusations against Sen Lacson and apologized.  Corpus also issued a publicly televised apology to Lacson for falsely accusing the senator.   

True to form, the magnanimous Lacson did not hurl vindictive comments against his accusers.  Instead, he tweeted a forgiving message to his former detractor.   “Late is always better than never. To ex-PGMA’s credit, she has the decency and courage to admit that she publicly and unjustly accused me of various crimes based of false information. Whatever, I have already forgiven her a long time ago.”  

Even in the thick of the present presidential election, Lacson maintains his nonbelligerent stance, preferring not to say anything about the other candidates wanting to be President of the Philippines because he is also running for the position.

In his recent interview session with Boy Abunda for the television personality’s series 2022 Presidential One-on-One Interviews, Lacson, one of five presidential candidates who were invited to the show, chose to talk instead about what made him best suited for the highest position in the Philippines.

“I am the most qualified, the most competent, the most experienced (candidate),” he told Abunda matter-of-factly without mentioning any of his rivals.

The candidate said it was time for voters to be discerning, to realize that politics was not entertainment and they should not be influenced by dole-outs.

In his campaign sorties, a singing and dancing Lacson would certainly not be on the program. “I won’t sacrifice authenticity,” he said, and would not do anything that had nothing to do with the country’s problems.

“The number one problem is the government, so the solution is the government- good, honest governance,” he said.

Lacson stressed, “Tough problems need tough solutions from the country’s top leaders.” His goal, if elected president, was to leave the country better off than when he started and see a greater respect for government officials.

Although he acknowledged that the qualifications for presidential candidates were so much simpler than those required of job applicants, the senator also pointed out that college degrees do not guarantee outstanding public service.

“Maraming may PhD na mas magaling magnakaw kaysa magsilbi sa bayan (there are many people with doctoral degrees who are very skilled in stealing public funds than in serving the country),” he said.

He would not oppose though some changes in the qualifications, although it would require a constitutional amendment. The job was demanding, he pointed out, and it called for skills in handling crises like the still ongoing corona virus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

Lacson said he would lead by example if he were elected president. He recalled that he was able to minimize graft and corruption in the Philippine National Police when he was its chief by consistently showing he could not be bribed. It was his leadership by example, he said, that drastically reduced, if not totally eliminated, corruption in the police establishment.

As a senator, he did not collect the pork barrel, or extra funds allocated to legislators ostensibly to finance pet projects. He was able to save the country millions of pesos by carefully and thoroughly reviewing every proposed annual budget of the government, he said.

Lacson would push for digitization and automation in government as president so there would be no human intervention. He said, “Human intervention always resulted in corruption.”

Lacson supported the resumption of mining in the country, “a major industry” of the Philippines, but it should be sustainable and responsible. “It must be data-driven and science-based.”

However, he also expressed concern that corruption would create the same problems as before. “Corruption lets violators get away (with their crimes). Palakasan (pull or influence) allowed people with the right connections to do as they please.”

Lacson’s vice presidential candidate is Senate President Vicente “Tito” C. Sotto III.

    اسمي محمد عبد الله في القاهرة بمصر. لدي مشكلة كبيرة منذ عام 2018. منذ أن فقدت والدي في 1 يونيو 2015 ، كنت أعاني من الكثير من المشاكل ، تمكنت من العمل في مطعم حيث تمكنت من فتح عملي الشخصي ، وكنت أبحث عن قرض تنمية عملي بشكل كبير ولم يسمح لي مصرفي بقرض بسبب أرباحي الضئيلة التي أحققها في عملي ؛ لذلك قررت البحث عن قرض عبر الإنترنت: لقد قابلت الكثير من المحتالين هنا على هذا الموقع ، حتى أن الكثير من الشركات تظاهر بأنها شركة حقيقية وأتابع معهم ؛ ولا في هذه الشركة حيث تكون قادرة على تقديم قرض لي ؛ ادعو الله؛ لذلك عندما حان وقت رمضان: أعرض كل مشكلتي على الله وأبحث مرة أخرى عن قرض عبر الإنترنت ؛ الحمد لله الذي فتح عيني والذي وجه يدي لاختيار "قرض الاتحاد الأوروبي المشترك" في البداية لم أثق أو أصدق الشركة بسبب تجربتي السابقة. لكن الله ظل يتحدث معي من خلال ذهني ، وأخيراً قررت المتابعة مع "قرض الاتحاد الأوروبي المشترك" وتقدمت بطلب قرض بقيمة 1،000،000.00 دولار للسداد في 15 عامًا: في 17 أبريل 2022 ، استلم قرضي على حسابي بعد اتبع جميع تعليمات الشركة ؛ لقد وعدت بمشاركة هذه الأخبار السارة لجميع المواقع التي سأصادفها ؛ لا تنخدع بالتعليق الوهمي على الإنترنت ...... لا توجد شركة أخرى شريفة هنا لأنني جربت الكثير منهم وهم محتالون ..... لا تذهب أو تتقدم بطلب للحصول على قرض من أي شخص آخر شركة؛ "نقابة القرض المشترك من الاتحاد الأوروبي" هي الشركة الصادقة الحقيقية هنا على هذا الموقع ، فهم أناس صادقون وجديرون بالثقة ومحترمون وجميلون ؛ تقدم بطلب للحصول على قرض منهم الآن وتأكيد. هذا هو عنوان البريد الإلكتروني الخاص بهم أو مراسلتهم عبر وكيلهم عبر الإنترنت WhatsApp للاستجابة السريعة على +393509828434 ؛ الحمد لله على كل شيء.

  2. عندما كنت أتقدم بطلب للحصول على قرض لشراء المبنى الخاص بي بصفتي صاحب شركة صغيرة في موقف صعب ، قال مصرف الإنماء إنهم لا يستطيعون مساعدتي. جلست نقابة قرض الاتحاد الأوروبي معي ، واستمعت إلى وضعي وقررت أنني أستحق المخاطرة. ها نحن بعد 5 سنوات وقد جددت للتو قرضي لمدة 7 سنوات أخرى من نقابة قرض الاتحاد الأوروبي. لم يكن بإمكاني شراء المبنى الخاص بي بدون مساعدة قرض الاتحاد الأوروبي المشترك وسأكون مدينًا لهم إلى الأبد لإعطائي فرصة عندما لا يفعل ذلك أي شخص آخر. إنهم شرعيون وصادقون ومخلصون ومحترمون ، أرسل لهم بريدًا إلكترونيًا إذا كنت مهتمًا بـ أو رقم WhatsApp: +393509828434 أو Telegram:
