Nora Aunor endorses Grace Poe for president
SINGER-ACTRESS Nora Aunor on Wednesday endorsed Senator Grace Poe for president in 2016.
Aunor said that if she were to be asked, she would say Poe should run for president, adding that the neophyte senator deserves to be elected in that post.
“Kung ako ang tatanungin, kung ako magsasabi sa kanya dapat presidente,” she said in an interview after attending a hearing in the Senate.
Asked if she would endorse Poe’s bid in case the latter would decide to run for the highest post, the superstar repeatedly said yes.
Asked again if she would campaign for Poe, Aunor said: “Yes, 101 percent.”
Aunor believes that the senator would set a good example to Filipinos if the latter would be elected president.
“Basta sa akin maganda yung mga pinapakita at ginagawa ng ating mahal na senador. Sinsero kasi sya, mararamdaman mo sa puso mo yung kanyang sinseridad,” she said.
Aunor said she was endorsing Poe not only because of her late father, Fernando Poe Jr. (FPJ), but because she believes the senator is capable of leading the country.
FPJ ran but lost to former President and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2004. AC
