Go keeps pace with frontrunners in latest Pulse Asia senatorial survey
May 11, 2019 - Saturday 2:05 PM by MDMFormer Special Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence
With two days to go before the May 13, 2019 elections, former Special Assistant to the President (SAP) and 2019 senatorial aspirant Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Saturday expressed his gratitude to the Filipino people for their continued trust and confidence.
Go made the statement following the release of the May 3 to 6 survey of the Pulse Asia on the senatorial race showing him strongly entrenched among the frontrunners, ranked in 3rd to 7th place with a voting preference of 42 percent.
“Maraming salamat po sa mga kapwa ko Pilipino sa inyong pagtitiwala sa aking kakayahan at hangarin na isulong ang mga pagbabagong nasimulan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte,” he said.
Go attributed his strong showing in the surveys on the endorsement of President Duterte and the majority of Filipino people who continues to believe in him, noting the record-high +72 net satisfaction rating of the Duterte administration in the recent Social Weather Stations survey.
“Malaking bagay po ang endorsement ni Pangulong Duterte dahil karamihan sa ating mga kababayan ay patuloy na nagtitiwala sa kanyang pangakong pagbabago, lalong-lalo na po ang kampanya laban sa kriminalidad, corruption, at iligal na droga,” he said.
Go said he is also thankful to the Iglesia ni Cristo, El Shaddai, Muslim leaders, the Independent Bishops Conference of the Philippines, Jesus is Lord Church, the Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ and 7th Day Adventist leaders for their prayers -- some of which expressed their support or endorsement for his senatorial bid.
He said as a neophyte politician going into his first ever elections, he is a bit anxious but the outpouring of support he has been receiving going into the last day of the campaign period is boosting his confidence.
“Baguhan pa lang po ako at medyo kinakabahan. Pero dahil sa mainit na suporta ng ating mga kababayan ay nakakataba ng puso at nagpapalakas ng aking loob,” he said.
Nevertheless, Go stressed that surveys are merely indicators of the public’s sentiment at a given time but the real verdict of the people will be revealed in the elections.
“Ipinapasa-Diyos ko na po ang aking kaparalan at sa ating mga kababayan na bahalang humusga sa darating na halalan," he said.
