Benigno ”Noynoy” Aquino, the son of the late democratic coupel fighters Ninoy Aquino and Corazon Aquino is the prospective winner of the presidential election in the Phils.
In a statement, he said:
”It has been an honor to share this humbling experience with all of you as we begin to accept the responsibility of leading our nation of over 90 million Filipinos. However, our commitment to the integrity of this election was and remains that the vote of each and every Filipino be counted fairly and honestly. ”
A responsibility to the nation not really meant to be. A responsibility burdened by sentiments in honor of his parents who dedicated their lives and fought for democracy. The same sentiments answered by the people who voted for him.
One of Benigno Aquino´s promises is not to steal from the people and country. Indeed, a promise hopefully not to be broken.
