ATTY. JESSE ANDRES’ STATEMENT RE LEGARDA’S
COMMENT ON VP NOLI
24 October 2005
unsavory remarks of defeated vice presidential candidate Loren Legarda against Vice
President Noli De Castro are
all baseless and uncalled for. He is very much confident as to his ability to lead
and be a genuine public
Alam niya ang kanyang kakayahan bilang isang epektibong public servant at lalong alam
ito ng mga taong naghalal,
sumusuporta at nagtitiwala sa kanya. For the record, then Senator De
Castro received the highest
approval ratings among his contemporaries in the last 12th Congress, as taken by
different survey firms.
And now that he is serving as Vice President, he is still getting the highest approval
ratings by the people. (In a recent SWS survey, 74% of the
respondents are confident that
Vice President De Castro is capable of governing the country and has the highest
satisfaction rating among top
government officials with 60% of
Filipinos satisfied with his performance.) By insulting the Vice President and by
accomplishments, former Senator Legarda also insulted and belittled the people who voted him
ito ni Loren, ito ay pagmamaliit sa kakayahang pumili ng taumbayan na pumili
ng kanilang pinuno.
veer away from her practice of mudslinging and personal attacks, which was her
practice even during the 2004
elections, as these have been proven futile against the good VP. You
cannot put a good man down.
