“Kahit hindi naman required ito ng batas, willing akong mag-volunteer na magpa-drug test. Ito ay para maipakita natin sa mga botante na fit for public service ang mga tumatakbo,” Go said.

(Even if it’s not required under the law, I am willing to volunteer to undergo drug testing. This is a way to show the voters that those who are running are fit for public service.)

“Karapatan ng mga mamamayang Pilipino malaman na malinis ang mga kandidato bago sila pumili ng mga mamumuno sa kanila. Wala dapat tinatago para makapili ng tama ang taumbayan!” he added.

(It’s the right of the people to know that the candidate is clean before they decide who to vote for. A candidate should not keep secrets so that the voters can choose.)

On Thursday, Duterte claimed that a presidential aspirant is using cocaine.

The President did not name the aspirant but hinted that the aspirant comes from a well-known and rich clan, whose family name means “strong” and is known for its patriarch.
