Plaza Hernandez, Tondo, Manila
9 May 2013
Hundreds of people supporting the Liberal Party (LP) flocked the streets of Plaza Hernandez in Tondo to join President Benigno S. Aquino III in supporting the LP candidates of the party’s Manila chapter.
In his speech, President Aquino expressed his great trust in the community of Tondo which he believes will not turn him down. He proudly reported that in a span of three years, this government was able to achieve a lot of programs despite statements from the previous administration that these are not possible. This was mainly because of the people who continue to support his administration in achieving its goals.
Moreover, the President stated that government had already addressed the deficiencies in books and chairs, and will be able to solve the deficiency in classrooms by December of this year.
President Aquino also expressed his trust in the incumbent mayor who is running for re-election because of his outstanding programs and achievements for the City of Manila. On the mayor’s request for assistance in the construction of the Ospital ng Maynila, the President said that he is willing to support the mayor’s plans and will answer half of the construction cost for the new hospital.
