MANILA, Philippines — Presidential candidate Sen. Panfilo Lacson and running mate Senate President Vicente Sotto III and their supporters vowed to reach the “deepest corners” of the country in the final week of the campaign before the elections on May 9. Presidential candidate Sen. Panfilo Lacson and running mate Senate President Vicente Sotto III and their supporters vowed to reach the “deepest corners” of the country in the final week of the campaign before the elections on May 9.

Lacson and Sotto vowed to push their campaign to the hilt as they held a motorcade through seven cities in Metro Manila yesterday organized by Pangkahalatang Sanggunian Manila at Suburbs Drivers Association (Pasang-Masda), Alliance of Transport Operators and Drivers Association of the Philippines (ALTODAP) and the Alliance of Concerned Transport Organizations (ACTO) that supported their electoral bids.

The tandem said they were gratified by the support of the top transport groups, who reached the decision to endorse them after studying and monitoring the public pronouncements and campaign programs of all presidential and vice presidential candidates.

“Apparently, they (Pasang-Masda, ALTODAP and ACTO) have been monitoring the platforms, interviews, sorties, have been observing who has the clearest platform, that’s what they told me,” Lacson told a press conference in Filipino after the motorcade that passed through Quezon City, Caloocan, Manila, Mandaluyong, Pasig, Marikina and San Juan.

“We did not even court them, they (transport groups) decided on their own,” he said.

Lacson described the reception from the streets as “very heartening” and Sotto called it “very inspiring.” They stressed the people’s reactions were spontaneous as they were not able to “organize” or artificially pack the streets with mostly paid supporters as what their rivals always do during motorcades.
