After the successful launch of the Register and Vote campaign via Rock the Vote concert in several areas, the RV bus follows through its advocacy by providing assistance in registering youths nationwide.
As part of the RV advocacy, transportation and other assistance that registrants need will be provided,” says independent senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan.
Pangilinan added that it is just a part of RV initiative to register people for the 2010 elections. “We will take our RV bus all over the country to create awareness and stress the importance of registering and voting in the coming national elections”, Senator Pangilinan said.
The RV bus is expected to roll on through Naga, Cebu, Bohol, Pampanga, Zamboanga, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, Pangasinan, and the campaign may possibly go abroad for overseas absentee voters.
“We cannot stress enough the importance and significance of the coming elections,” says Pangilinan.
“The unregistered, hence ‘voiceless’, electorates will definitely usher in much needed change that the Philippine political landscape needs.”
