It’s now 2013 and they’re still talking about President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo?

For former Rep. Juan Miguel Zubiri, that’s so 2007.

Zubiri, who is running under the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), assailed the opposing administration ticket for still bringing up the former President as a campaign issue for the May 13 elections.

“It’s 2013. Let’s move on,” he told reporters and editors during a recent visit to the Inquirer.

“Maybe we should stop blaming previous administrations. Maybe we should start looking at what we should do in the future,” he added.

President Aquino himself often mentions the subject in his own speeches and during campaign sorties of his senatorial ticket.

Zubiri agreed to the idea that the current campaign should scrutinize the incumbent administration for what it had done since it took office three years ago.
