Independent Senator Francis ‘Kiko’ Pangilinan today urges all reform minded leaders and groups to consider a continuing dialogue for unity and asks Senator Noynoy Aquino to take the lead in helping unite the fractious reform constituency.
“A united front is needed to defeat traditional politics, which is the main source of corruption and bad governance. 2010 should no longer be about the opposition or administration, but about genuine change. “
Pangilinan, who ran as an independent candidate and won convincingly as senator in 2007, says true reformists must unite and change the Philippine political landscape.
“We urge senator Noynoy to tap the goodwill brought about by the death of President Cory Aquino and take the lead in helping unite all those committed to genuine change. Politics as usual will never work. We need a true alternative.”
