Senator and presidential aspirant Panfilo Lacson promised that the Philippines will become better after six years if he is elected president in May. 

Lacson highlighted his ability, qualifications, and decades-long experience in public service.

“Ito ang aking panata sa bayan: towards the end of my term as President, there should be no doubt in the mind of every Filipino that we are better off than when we started; that our people trust their government much better than ever before,” Lacson said during the presidential forum organized by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP).

He also wished that he was able to present his platforms properly before the Filipinos. 

“To the Filipino people, when the dust settled in the war zone and all programs and platforms were heard, I sincerely hope that I was able to present myself as the leader we need: competent, qualified, and with the wealth of experience,” he said.

Lacson was a Philippine National Police chief, senator for three terms, and rehabilitation and recovery czar after Super Typhoon Yolanda devastated the Visayas in 2013.

He also ran for president in 2004 but lost to Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Lacson’s campaign focuses on good governance, fight against corruption, and budget reforms. Ronald Espartinez
