MANILA, Philippines — Presidential candidate former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Thursday urged voters to vote for the country’s unity and future on Monday, election day.

Speaking before a mammoth crowd in Tagum City, Davao del Norte, Marcos said he chose Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) and regional party Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) chairperson Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as his running mate and their senatorial candidates under UniTeam because they share a common desire to see people come together and face the challenges ahead with single-mindedness.

He said the May 9 vote is meaningful, at it takes place while the nation is in the middle of two crises: The COVID-19 pandemic and the economic difficulties it triggered.

“Nasa crisis pa tayo ng pandemya, nasa crisis pa tayo ng ekonomiya na dala ng pandemya. Ito po ay magiging napaka-makabuluhan na halalan dahil sa Lunes, aalamin natin kung saan natin itutungo ang ating minamahal na bansang Pilipinas. Sa darating na Lunes, ang pagboto ninyo sa tambalang Marcos at Duterte at sa UniTeam ay tinig ng madlang Pilipino para sa kinabukasan, para sa pagkakaisa, para sa pagmamahal sa Pilipinas,” Marcos said during Thursday night’s UniTeam miting de avance.

“Kayat napakahalaga po ng inyong boto, napakahalaga na kayoy pumunta sa ating mga presinto at sama-sama tayo na bumoto. Ito ay napakahalaga, ito ang ating responsibilidad para tulungan ang ating bansa, para ipagpatuloy ang kilusan ng pagkakaisa para sa mamamayang Pilipino para sa ating minamahal na Pilipinas.”

Marcos vowed that he, Duterte, the UniTeam senators, and his allies would do all they could to deliver on their promises, should they win..

“Ang tambalang Marcos-Duterte kami ay nangangako, na kami ay gagawin namin sa aming kakayahan, buong sipag na walang pagod at patuloy na pagtrabaho para sa ating bansa upang sama sama po tayong babangon muli,” Marcos said.

Echoing Marcos’ appeal for unity, Duterte said political partisans should forget about divisiveness represented by various colors – red, pink, green, yellow, orange – after the nation chooses its new set of leaders.

They should think that all Filipinos belong to one country, she said.

In his remarks, Marcos said he, Duterte and their UniTeam coalition consistently spread and shared their message of unity, healing, hope, and patriotism across the nation during their entire length of the election campaign.

He said they are happy that people in the urban and rural communities they have visited have embraced their message and their aspirations for the country.

“Nakita po natin na habang umiikot po tayo ay tinatanggap ang mensahe ng pagkakaisa. Nakita po natin na parami nang parami, palakas nang palakas ang suporta, at parami nang parami ang nagsasanib puwersa sa UniTeam sa likod ng pagkakaisa. Kami po ay hindi nagtataka dahil po alam naman po natin na ang ating mga kababayan ay mapagmahal, ang mga Pilipino ay may malasakit sa kapwa. Nakita po natin na ang suporta nasa likod ng Uniteam,” said Marcos.

“Kaya naman po hindi namin tinigilan ang aming pagsigaw sa aming paniniwala na pagkakaisa ang kailangan natin sa Pilipinas ngayon, ang pagkakaisa na magdadala muli ng mas magandang buhay para sa ating mga kababayan, na masabi may trabaho ulit ang ating mga kababayan, may pera ulit sa bulsa ang mga Pilipino, kayang pakainin ang kanilang mga pamilya, kayang pag-aralin ang kanilang mga anak, at bukod sa lahat ay sana dito sa aming pagbigay sa mensahe ng pagkakaisa ay makikita po natin na gaganda ang buhay hindi lamang ng iilan kung hindi ang lahat ng Pilipino, lahat ng mamamayang Pilipino at papaganda ang buhay ng Pilipinas.”

Marcos expressed elation over the broad popular support his tandem with Duterte and his UniTeam coalition now enjoy.

“Ngayon lang tayo nakakita na mahigit kumulang 65 percent ng tao ay nasa atin na at sumasama sa atin at nakikipagsanib puwersa sa atin,” Marcos said.
