Should honesty be an election issue? Duterte answers
By Prince Golez
It depends, said President Rodrigo Duterte told reporters at the sidelines of the 122nd Philippine Army Anniversary held in Taguig, City Thursday.
“If you’re hanging by the thread, of what good use would it be, if it’ll just create trouble. There are things left unsaid and there are things which you can answer correctly. Okay?” added Duterte.
Hugpong ng Pagbabago founder and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio earlier said that honesty should not be an issue in this year’s elections because “all candidates have been telling lies.”
Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo also said some voters do not consider honesty when making a ballot choice.
