Senatorial bet Samira Gutoc was the biggest surprise in the CNN Philippines senatorial debate as the survey laggard proved to be the most fun and enlightening to watch among the participants.
If you haven’t heard of Gutoc, her closing statement in Saturday night’s debate will make you wish the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago was still in the Senate to put blowhards in their proper places.
“Ang biktima ng tokhang ina, bata. Ang biktima ng TRAIN Law ina, bata. Ang biktima ng martial law ina, bata, because the conflicts’ victims are women and families,” said Gutoc. .
“Ako ay tumitindig para sa mga taong walang boses, hindi makakarating sa Maynila, walang mikropono. Kailangang tutukan ang mga kababaihan na binabastos, ang mga batang ginagawang orphans,” she said.
“Tinokhang, pinatay wala namang survivorship funds. It’s not the PNP’s job to kill people, it is to protect the people and that is the job of Samira Gutoc,” she added.
